I began taking Zyrtec about 6 years ago for allergies which cover the broad spectrum for indoor and outdoor allergies. My allergies were in the 1 to 2+ range so they weren't considered severe but they made me miserable with itchy rashes, watery/itchy eyes & ears, etc. It gave me relief!!! Then our insurance stopped approving it when Claritin came out over the counter which they said was Zyrtec's equivalent. Well, it isn't!! I was miserable for a couple of years trying to treat my allergy symptoms (nothing worked) when I asked my doctor [...] to try to arbitrate with the insurance to get me approved again since nothing was working at alleviating my symptoms. They did approve it and I was so glad and symptom free again. Then 3 months later, Zyrtec came out over the counter and I am so glad because now I can get it easily and can find deals on it. There is also a generic out now which I want to try to see if it works as well. I never had noticed drowsiness when I took it during the day but I know everyone is different but you can always take it at night.

I've tried several allergy medicines in my life, and just about all OTC ones knock me out, hence why I've never tried Zyrtec until today. But I've been fighting a cold so my immune system is in overdrive, and my Allegra prescription had run out awhile ago. (Allegra is the only antihistamine that hasn't knocked me out.) I was desperate so I went to the pharmacy and bought a five pill package of Zyrtec. I took it at 1:30pm. It's now 7:40pm, and my allergy symptoms are worse than before. I'm in hell right now. Zyrtec soooo does not work for me. I just took a Children's Benadryl Chewable because I'm so desperate and we have nothing else in the house. I think it's already kicking in. It's only 12.5mg so I hope it doesn't knock me out.

So I guess I'm saying that anyone should be aware that this may not do a thing for you, and to have a reliable back up ready just in case, even if it knocks you out, just so you're not as miserable as I've been today.

        I use this everyday during pollen season and it enables me to feel normal. I have never noticed any side effects, and I tend to be very sensitive to medications.

        Comments about Zyrtec Allergy, 24 Hour 10 mg Tablets, 45 ea:

        I am generally healthy and active but my seasonal allergies have been horrible for the past two years. I gave Zyrtec a try for a year... because it worked the best on its own and I was overseas but... I was SO SLEEPY... I wasn't sure that it was the Zyrtec until I finally stopped taking it and tried a combination of other things. It was easier on Zyrtec..one pill a day...but the drowsiness was too much for me! I recommend if nothing else is working for you but be aware that you may become quite drowsy. I was able to drive, but I had a general sleepiness all day regardless if I took in the morning or evening.

        This is the first allegry medicine of its kind that I have tried. I am happy with its effectiveness, but it does make me drowsy. I take it in the evening before bed and sleep WONDERFULLY. The flip side of that is I do have a tough time waking up and getting moving in the morning.

        ZyrtecThe Good Things I like about it clears your allergies during Morning it does pretty good for my allergies but the Worst things are at night to me i don't think this Zyrtec isn't even at 24 hours at all to me i think its less 24 hours because it too me it doesn't work very good indoors at all on your allergies for me. Like Here like everyday i get up in morning i take the pill about 8-9 am when i first up since my allergies act up really bad and the worst thing i hate when it takes awhile to Kick in the Zyrtec medicine its takes awhile plus after you do that for awhile like you have running nouse then you sneeze few times maybe 4-6 times in a row maybe more then its in your body then you can smell about after awhile until afternoon close to the Sunset to dark then after that your allergies act ups things i hate believe that Zyrtec has No Relieves at all to Allergies During Night time because like if i go to bed after i do all my chores i do get in showers sometimes help just least 2-3% to get rid of the pollen but you get all stuff up even if your in the shower after your done or not its like after few minutes during that night maybe less then 5 minutes your stuff nose up,runny noses and you have go in the bathroom and get toilet paper and then after doing that for awhile you sneeze again once already had taken the pill in the morning its like nothing at Night Time to me i think Zyrtec only works for me least 11 hrs-12 hrs not 24 hr for me since i am allergic to Pollen (like air,weeds,grass) i probably give you a 2.9

                Began taking Zyrtec while it still was a prescription medication--and have continued after it became available OTC. It is most effective in dealing with allergies and has no side effects of which I am aware.

                Zyrtec Allergy, 24 Hour 10 mg Tablets

                 – Whether you suffer from indoor or outdoor allergies, you undoubtedly know how uncomfortable and irritating your symptoms can be. You may be able to relieve the sneezing, runny nose, and other common respiratory symptoms of allergies with the help of Zyrtec Allergy, 24 Hour 10 mg Tablets. This over-the-counter medication contains the same active ingredient as the original prescription Zyrtec, which has been helping to calm allergy symptoms for decades. The tablets are fast-acting and long-lasting, which can help provide continuous relief from the discomfort associated with allergies.

                Medication History



                Like most antihistamines, Zyrtec began as a prescription drug when it was first approved by the FDA. Later it became available for sale over the counter, allowing countless allergy sufferers access to the medication for the first time. Zyrtec Allergy Tablets contain the same ingredients as the original prescription drug and offer you the same relief. The active ingredient found in Zyrtec is cetirizine Hcl--a powerful antihistamine. As a second-generation antihistamine, it can help temporarily relieve many of the most common allergy symptoms without causing as many side effects as first-generation medications. Zyrtec can give you fast, long-lasting relief from your most bothersome indoor and outdoor allergy symptoms.

                Allergy Relief with Zyrtec



                Whereas other popular allergy medications can take up to three hours before they start working, Zyrtec may begin to alleviate your discomfort after just one hour. It can help relieve symptoms like itchy and watery eyes, an itchy nose or throat, a runny nose, and sneezing. Whether your allergies are caused by hay fever, pet dander, or other common triggers, one 10 mg Zyrtec tablet has the histamine-fighting power to keep your symptoms at bay. This medication is also long-lasting. One dose is formulated to provide continuous relief for up to 24 hours.
