I had a reaction to my allergy shot and was administered an epinephrine shot and a zyrtec (cetirizine) pill. Is it still safe to breastfeed my baby tonight?

In brief: Breast feeding OK

How long ago was your reaction? If you don't feel sleepy from the zyrtec (cetirizine) or your heart isn't beating rapidly from the Adrenalin you can breast feed your baby tonight.
To be on the absolute safe side you can wait until tomorrow morning.
