Zyrtec Nasal Spray
Is it common for cobblestone throat to persist even after taking zyrtec and nasal spray for a week?
Sure: Sometimes, the "cobblestoning" you described is caused by a combination of post-nasal drip and direct effect of the allergen on the mucosa of the back of your throat. Stay patient. It may take a bit longer to resolve. Fyi - the medicines you are taking are spot-on treatment.

I had a runny nose only from right side. Left nostril was dry. I had it for 1and half day. I took zyrtec and avamays nasal spray. Wats this 1sided symptm?
Runny nose: If it only happened for 1 1/2 days and went away, it should not be of concern. Local irritant maybe? Only when it's chronic, a runny nose that seems to affect one side of the nose more than the other side could signal an anatomical problem, such as a spinal fluid leak. When symptoms include obstruction to air flow, other conditions, such as a deviated nasal septum, need to be considered.

I am taking Allegra 180mg and Zyrtec 10mg plus using Nasacort (triamcinolone) nasal spray for seasonal allergies. Can I safely continue that or is it too much?
Safe but: If you need that much medication to control your symptoms, it may be time for you to consult an allergist. I also suspect that even the combined medications do not offer you complete relief.

Have fluid behind ears causing congestion. Prescribed Flonase nasal spray. Would Zyrtec make the pressure/fluid worse? Didn't think to ask my doctor.
Fluid and blood in ear and head aches. Doctor gave me nasal spray and zyrtec. Should I worry about the blood?
Congestion: Congestion and ear infections can cause blood in the ear. If bleeding persist or worsen seek help.
How come I get allergy shots n take allegra with atrovent nasal spray in mornings & zyrtec with benydryl n dymista at night, and still have allergies?
Allergies: These treatments only manage the symptoms, they don't cure allergies. Even allergy shots only "immunomodulate" your immune system, helping you respond less brisky to the things you are allergic to. Another couple of treatments you might consider is nasal saline irrigation and nasal steroids if you haven't been on them in the past.
Is it safe to take Robitussin Cough + Chest Congestion DM while on Lexapro, (escitalopram) Synthroid, Zyrtec, Dymista Nasal Spray & Albuterol nebulizer?
Many meds: At your age (or anyone else for that matter) taking five medicines and wanting another one is not smart unless your doctor has told what medical problems you have. Having said that, if your doctor did prescribe those meds, over time the meds should be reduced. Please let me know what develops.
