1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes with caution

If zyrtec (cetirizine) is needed every day to control symptoms for more than a week or two , a patient needs evaluation as possibly there is a chronic allergic disorder that needs more study, may be another medication needs to be prescribed, some patients are taking zyretc or other antihistamines for extended periods under medical supervision.
