I had taken generic Zyrtec for years and decided to stop many months ago. I had no withdrawal symptoms when I stopped until a week ago I broke out in a rash on my arms, then spread to my neck, chest and thighs. Terrible itching and redness. Wondering if my rash is related to the discontinuation of Zyrtec. Has anyone else experienced this? From what I have been reading, most people have withdrawal symptoms as soon as they stop taking this drug.

Hi Rose,

Sorry to hear about your situation. If you have a moment, I'd encourage you to check out the following related discussion thread pertaining to Zyrtec/Cetirizine withdrawal symptoms at: medschat.com/204553

Apparently, the itching and rashes have affected quite a significant number of people. However, if I recall correctly, somewhere in the not too distant dialogues within that discussion thread are possible remedies people have reported for alleviating this unique problem. I found that thread very helpful and just wanted to pass along any information that could benefit others who may be undergoing the same symptoms.

Best wishes to you!

Re: David (# 1)

Thanks David. I have read lots about remedies and have gotten a few OTC lotions and bath items that are helping. I'm still not sure if my rash is really from discontinuing Zyrtec or if it is from something else. In any case, I don't think I will go back to using Zyrtec.
