OTC Zyrtec

I was just wondering if anyone else takes Zyrtec daily year around. Because I’ve been taking it daily for over a year now and I just stumbled on a article that said long term use can make you more prone to brain cancer. It scares me deeply knowing that I’ve been taking this medication and not know this information. Does anyone have any advice or information that may make me feel less scared. I’m going to stop taking immediately because of this information but I’m scared it might be to late.

If you are worried at all about this we would suggest you speak to any reputable pharmacy who will be able to explain to you about the product and what alternatives are available if you feel that you need to change.

I suppose smoking can also do this and make the smoker more prone to forms of cancer. I suppose you could take less dosages and speak to your doctor about healthier options or instructions on what you could do to make things better for you. All the best.

Were you told by your doctor to drink Zyrtec every day? If not, then I think you should consult your doctor about this

Unlike first-generation antihistamines, cetirizine is less likely to cause side effects such as dangerous drowsiness, dry mouth, blurred vision, and overheating. That said, Cetirizine can cause adverse effects, such as: some drowsiness. excessive tiredness.
