Can taking zyrtec (cetirizine) d daily affect a pregnant test result? Is allergy med safe for pregnant women?
Not that I'm aware : I've not heard of zyrtec (cetirizine) d causing a pregnancy test issue. Regarding allergy meds in pregnancy, i generally avoid allergy meds that have a decongestant. So, regular zyrtec (cetirizine) would be preferred over zyrtec (cetirizine) d. Some antihistamines can be used in pregnancy for allergies. Benedryl is fine. However, without knowing your other meds, you should alert your OB what you are taking. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I take Prilosec and Zyrtec (cetirizine) D on a daily basis. Would creatine mixed with these have any additional effects on my health/body?
Not Likely: I do not like to give patients Zyrtec-D on a regular basis because the pseudoephedrine in it can cause increased heart rate, blood pressure, insomnia, irritability, and agitation. Prilosec can cause some vitamins and minerals not to absorb into the body from the digestive tract as easily so if you are seriously working out you might discuss this with your doc. These don't interact with creatine. ...Read more
I have bad allerigies sometimes. Cetirizine stopped working so i take zyrtec (cetirizine) d. I heard u cnt take decongestants too long. Wat are longterm treatments?
No: Zyrtec (cetirizine) d contains an antihistamine (zyrtec) which helps itching, sneezing and drippy nose and a decongestant (sudafed) which helps stuffiness. Zyrtec (cetirizine) can cause drowsiness in some people. Sudafed can cause stimulation side effects like tremor, nervousness, insomnia, increased pulse rate and increased blood pressure. Zyrtec (cetirizine) d should be used with caution in people with heart disease. ...Read more

ZyrtecD+Nyquil Cough: I would recommend that you NOT take these medications together at the same time because doing so will be like taking 5 drugs at the same time. Take the Nyquil Cough before going to bed. If needed, you can take the Zyrtec (cetirizine) D once daily as needed in the morning. Reserve the Nyquil for just before bedtime. If you have diabetes or high blood pressure, check with your doctor first. ...Read more
Allegra (fexofenadine) 180 mg: Zyrtec may cause drowsiness. Allegra (fexofenadine) does not cross into the brain and should not cause drowsiness. The "d" component is a decongestant and may cause insomnia, decreased appetite, high blood pressure and in men - urinary difficulties due to prostate issues so I do not prefer the Allegra (fexofenadine)-D products.
