Itching Withdrawal from Cetirizine or Zyrtec
I want to know how many are suffering from withdrawal from this drug that causes itching all over the body. At there is an article about this very problem yet Zyrtec doesn't list the information on their web site. This is my third attempt to get off of this med and I'm going crazy from the itching. ## If you take any medication for a long period of time, you will experience some withdrawal effects. This is just as true of allergy medications, as it is of any other. One of the most common withdrawal effects are rebound effects, so for an allergy medication, this can include itching. Have you spoken to your doctor about it? ## I keep getting itching after this. Not had it before, but it's the first time I've taken the medicine for more than a month (aro...

lit pink and white capsule with no numbers on it!!
would ya know what kind of pill this is!! i found it out side of the end of my drive way.of my house on the ground.i do not need for my Daughter to get a hold of it.please let me know what the it is.Thanks..... ## Hello, Lynn! How are you? If there are no markings on it, it is most likely an over the counter product. There are some Diphenhydramine capsules that match this description, they are a generic or store brand of Benadryl, which is used to treat allergies. I'm not certain, but I'll do some more looking and post back, when I have more information for you. Does anyone else have any idea of what this contains?

clogged ears from zyrtec
I purchased zyrtec d with decongestion to clear my nose but after taking it my ears have clogged up both ears. Did not have ear problem before. Any suggestions to fix this problem. Thank you for any help. ## Hello, Marcia! How are you? I'm thinking your clogged ears are most likely related to being sick to begin with and not the Zyrtec, but only your doctor can say for sure. Do you commonly have ear problems, such as infections? Are you on any other medications? Do you frequently get sinus infections or have colds?

Oval Scored White Pill 4h2 Imprint
Found broken oval white pill with 442 or possibly 4H2 imprint. Wondering what it is. ## Hi Barbara, Based on the description provided, I found the white oval pill to be Cetirizine hydrochloride (10 mg). Cetirizine hydrochloride is a major metabolite of hydroxyzine, and a racemic selective H1 receptor inverse agonist used in the treatment of allergies, hay fever, angioedema, and urticaria. For more information about this drug, please refer to the link below... If you have any more questions or concerns, please post back and I will be happy to help you. ## Is it ok to take a 2mg. Xanex bar with 10 or 20mgs of Cetirizine?
