Other side effects may include drowsiness, dry mouth, weight changes, and mood changes. Are you on any other medications? Have you tried any others to treat your allergies?

xyzal side effects

I took Xyzal for 3 days a couple of years ago and it took the energy and endurance out of my body and legs. I also had a pounding sound in my ears. ## My doc said it couldn't have been the Zyzal that caused the muscle fatigue so I tried it again this year. After two days I had the same symptoms....this stuff is dangerous. ## That can be a normal side effect of this medication, according to FDA reports, since it is an antihistamine that is used to treat or prevent allergies. It may also cause drowsiness, skin rash, headache, and congestion. NDC code: 0024-5800, but the information found if you click that code is just one example, since it is manufactured by several different companies. However, side effects are usually transient, and then to improve with time, as your body gets used ...

bad reaction from Xyzal

I took Xyzal on April 20th and April 21st 2009 for seasonal allergies. I only took 2 5mg tablets and ended up in the hospital. I had hallucinations for 5 days. It was like being on LSD. I lost a weeks pay and put my family through alot. I am now going to see a phychiarist to deal with this. It affected me so much that they put me on Zoloft. I also contacted the FDA and reported this. I am currently seeing a new doctor and he has never heard of Xyzal. Has anybody else using Xyzal had a bad reaction? ## On April 20th and April 21st I took Xyzal. My doctor told me take it before going to bed because it makes you drowsy. Well it didn't make me drowsy. The pills were only 5 milligrams each. I had 5 days of hallucinations and did not sleep for the 5 nights. The hallucinations were so bad ...

white oval pill scored on both sides and x on both halves of the score

Pill is oval, scored on both sides, nothing on the back. "x" on both halves on the front. I found it at work. ## Hi Ron, A white oval pill with X X on it is reportedly identified as Xyzal allergy (24 hour) relief, containing 5mgs of levocetirizine. For verification, the National Drug Code is listed as 41167-3510. Finding allergy medicine at work doesn't strike me as anything of concern and seems like it could be fairly common. Hope this helps! ## This is identified as a 5mg Xyzal Allergy 24hr tablet (containing Levocetirizine Dihydrochloride) if it is like this photo here: [1]. Xyzal Allergy-Relief Pill Image

Xyzal No Longer Working

Did Xyzal change their formula recently. I've been taking Xyzal for years for chronic urticaria. However, as of the last refill (June, 2014), it stopped working. Has anyone had this issue? My doctor wants me to try the generic to see if that works. Is there anything else that works as well as Xyzal? ## Hello, Tommy! How are you? No, but what has most likely happened is that you've developed a tolerance to it, after having been on it for so many years. You'll likely need to take a break from it and try a different medication for awhile. What others have you tried for your uticaria? ## Hi, thanks so much for the reply. The docs have me combining it with Allegra. I'm not sure it's working that well yet. I have to wait until the Prednisone treatment is complete. Other th...

I THINK IT MIGHT BE SOME SORT OF COLD MEDICINE BUT NOT SURE. CAN'T FIND ANYTHING LIKE IT ON THE INTERNET. ANY CLUES? ## Hello! I found a white small round pill. Score on both sides an xx on one side. Anyone know what this could be ## @Musiclyfe, I located a white pill with XX on one side that was reportedly identified as "Xyzal allergy 24hr" containing 5 mgs of Levocetirizine. Unfortunately however, there aren't any images to go off of for verifying the presence and placement of score lines. For further verification, the pill in question carries a National Drug Code of 41167-3510 and is distributed by Chattem, Inc - a company that ...

Xyzal - How long does it take to work for CIU

Last night we switched my 16yo from Claritin to Xyzal - She woke up with more hives than normal. Should this start working right away for hives? Or does it take a while to build up in the system? ## Why was her medication switched? It should work within 15 to 20 minutes, just like the Claritin did. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and dry mouth. Neither of these may work super effectively for hives. Were they prescribed by her doctor? What is she allergic to?

I have discovered some white pills in my elderly mother's possession. They are small - approximately 6mm in length. They are smooth on boths sides with a Y on one side.

can taking xyzal for allergies cause a false positive for methadone? ## Xyzal contains the active ingredient Levocetirizine and no, it hasn't been known to cause a false positive for anything in standard drug tests. Learn more Xyzal details here. Did you register a false positive?

abstraction

can the antihistamine be extracted from Xyzal ## Since the active ingredient in Xyzal is Levocetirizine, with no other active ingredients, why would you need to extract it? Once it's compounded in with other inactive ingredients, it would be a very tedious and most likely expensive process. If you prefer it in some other form, then why not just look for the Levocetirizine in a different formulation?
