Long term use of Levocetirizine

I am suffering from chronic idiopathic urticaria (CIU) since 2005 and taking Levocetirizine 5mg every alternate day. Is there any possibility of serious side effect as i am taking it for long time? Levocetirizine or Ebastine which one will be the better choice for long-term use in CIU? ## What has your doctor advised? There are always risks associated with the long-term use of any medication, including the possibility of organ damage, such as that which may occur to the liver, since most medications are processed through it. As to which one may be better, it is hard to say, because they all carry the possibility of risks. Only you and your doctor can decide what is right and carries the least risk for you. You can learn more about both of them here: ## Thanks Verwon for your reply. none...

Can levocetirizine increase symptoms of glaucoma?

I have been taking Xyzal (levocetirizine dihydrochloride) along with ornidazole 500mg + ofloxacin 200mg for four days now to treat a UTI. I have also been on diamox and slow-k., along with drulatan and brimopress eye drops for my open-angle glaucoma. However, my eye pressure just keeps increasing since I started the treatment for the urinary tract infection. Could any of the antibiotics or the levocetirizine be causing it? Thanks.
