Cetirizine (10mg) for itch

It helps quite well for the itch but as a side effect it does make me extremely sleepy. I can only take these tablets if I know I don't have to drive for the next 12 hours. So I also use it as a sleeping pill.

Cetirizine (10mg) for hayfever

I've used cetirizine tables for my hayfever for years. It limits my hayfever symptoms. It just makes me a bit drowsy. So I take the tablet just before I go to bed. It works for 24 hours.

Cetirizine (10mg) for allergy

For hayfever, changeable weather, food allergies, etc. Struggled with sleepiness, mostly when I started, But because I take other medicines there are a still a few things I have to put up with. What are you going to do, though?

Cetirizine (10mg) for hayfever

This works fine, but it made me very sleepy. The manual says that’s supposed to pass after a while, but it’s been two weeks already. Guess I’ll have to wait and see.

Cetirizine (10mg) for allergy

I started using this after several episodes of hives, a recurring cold and itching. The symptoms are now under control, so I take it whenever I feel something coming up.

Cetirizine (10mg) for allergy

I had unbearable side effects when taking antibiotics. I was prescribed other antibiotics. The problems just got worse. Went to the pharmacist, had to stop taking the medicine immediately. That's how bad I looked. She gave me Cetirizine. It was supposed to counteract the itch within an hour.. But unfortunately, the itch got worse and the spotty rash too. So I rang the GP again and he prescribed...

Cetirizine (10mg) for allergy

For years I have suffered with shortness of breath from mid-May. Also allergic to anything and everything... (even too much deodorant) but never used Cetirizine. But after one especially warm day in May this year (2016), the penny dropped. Tried two hayfever medicines and bingo. I am a big guy > 80 kg and I take 2 x 10 mg tablets before I go to sleep. Wake up as fresh as a daisy and don't even ...

Cetirizine (10mg) for hayfever

I used this medicine now and then. In spring I'm always affected by birch pollen and then a few months later slightly less so by grass pollen. In the autumn, it's always dust mites. If I notice that the allergy is taking over I take it for a while combined with a Prevalin nasal spray and Ventolin for my breathlessness. I don't take it often enough or if it's not really necessary because it make...

Cetirizine (10mg) for allergy

I have a serious cow's milk allergy + lactose intolerance (yes, they are 2 separate things!) and in the Netherlands you can't get Cetirizine without lactose. You can in Spain, made by Normon, but unfortunately that's not available in the Netherlands.

Cetirizine (10mg) for hayfever

I don't suffer from hayfever because of the weather but a few times a year hayfever-type symptoms seem to appear: red eyes, bunged up nose, sniffing, etc. On advice from the GP I started taking these tablets with really good results. Very happy!
