Can taking zyrtec (cetirizine) d daily affect a pregnant test result? Is allergy med safe for pregnant women?

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 more

I take Prilosec and Zyrtec (cetirizine) D on a daily basis. Would creatine mixed with these have any additional effects on my health/body?

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

Can I take Zyrtec-D and NyQuil cough together?

Can I take Zyrtec-D and NyQuil cough together?

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
