I had been "cured" for years with my previous shot regiment. This is the first year that I need to take an allergy pill daily however I suddenly put on weight around the midline. My daughter suggested it might be the Zyrtec and sure enough I bet she's right. I think I just took my last one after reading some of the other reviews...back to Benadryl.

It was giving to my 10 year old and he developed depression and irritability. It worked on allergies. We are taking him off of it. We are getting our son back.

I originally took Zyrtec when it was prescribed for a bad rash & it worked great! Recently, my allergy problems have increased to the point that I felt like a cat trying to cough up a hairball every morning! I started taking Zyrtec OTC & my symptoms have disappeared, my congestion is gone. I must be in the minority because I have experienced no problems with drowsiness.

I've been taking zyrtec syrup for years but when I started the tablet zyrtec I've been having increased Anxiety and Depression. I researched to make sure and those are actual side effects of it. It's good for allergies but it's side effects are emotionally devestating.

This medication made me somewhat tired but has helped tremendously. I have suffered with hives for roughly 2 months. Since I have been taking this medication, I have not had an outbreak. I still have not found out what the allergen is and I am still going through testing.
