Itching Withdrawal from Cetirizine or Zyrtec
373 Replies RSS
I want to know how many are suffering from withdrawal from this drug that causes itching all over the body. At peoplespharmacy.com 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...

2 Replies RSS
I have been eating allegra 120 since last 1 month. my question is can i eat Tritrab-DSR (rabprazole) antacid. ## Hi Rucha, According to umm.edu, there are no drug interactions listed between Allegra and Rabeprazole. Based off this information alone, I don't see any reason why you wouldn't be able take these two meds together. The only thing I'm weary of when it comes to using more than 1 medication at a time is that in the event of any side effects (god forbid), it may be difficult to determine which medication is the underlying cause. At any rate, please post back if there's anything else I can help with! ## Hi. When you take any medication too close in proximity, time-wise, to an antacid or a laxative, less of whatever you are taking, gets in your system. You need to s...
