Zyrtec (cetirizine) dose. The usual dose of zyrtec (cetirizine) is 10mgm daily. In some patients, especially with hives and itching, we use 10mgm twice daily. Zyrtec is now much less expensive as the generic preparations are available.
Yes. If needed they may be taken everyday. Atarax (hydroxyzine) has been used for over 60 years and other than drowsiness & constipation is quite safe. When you take Hydroxyzine it is coverted to Cetirizine in your body. So people have been taking zyrtec (cetirizine) safely for 60 years.
I'm needing to know if there will be a reaction or overdose from take dimetapp multi symptoms for kids with brompheniramine and Cetirizine Allergy?
Antihistamine. Both brompheniramine and cetirizine are antihistamines. Taking both medications is like taking a double dose- however not an overdose. Increased sleepiness may be the main effect.
It is possible. Generally these class of OTC remedies are discourage by the acdemy of pediatrics. With the multisymptom cough remedies your child will be getting medications that may not be necessary with the risk of abnormal dosing. Supportive therapy can help with some symptoms. If no improvement a consult with the pediatrician is recommended for specific therapy.
