More information

  • Usage

    Cetirizine hydrochloride (Zyrtec) is a selective H1-receptor antagonist that is used for relief of symptoms from seasonal allergic rhinitis caused by ragweed, grass, tree pollen and other allergens. Zyrtec can also be used for specific cases of perennial allergic rhinitis and chronic urticaria. Cetirizine is an antihistamine that is a metabolite of hydroxyzine and inhibits H1 receptors peripherally. Cetirizine has been shown to inhibit the wheal and flare reaction seen after intradermal injection of histamine. Cetirizine is a less selective version of levocetirizine (Xyzal) and is also similar to azelastine nasal spray.

  • Cetirizine – Side Effects

    Side effects from cetirizine use include, but are not limited to, dry mouth, headache, pharyngitis, abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting. People with a known hypersensitivity or allergic reaction to cetirizine, Zyrtec, hydroxyzine, or components in Zyrtec should avoid using the medication. Cetirizine and alcohol should not be used together. Before using cetirizine, it is necessary to discuss possible side effects with one’s pharmacist and medical provider.

  • Cost Information

    Cetirizine is relatively affordable at under thirty cents per pill. Additional cetirizine coupons (Zyrtec coupons) can be found online from time to time. Cetirizine is available over-the-counter (OTC) in the US. However, some people need a cetirizine prescription because insurance will not cover the cost of OTC cetirizine. For prescription cetirizine, one cannot just buy cetirizine online without first consulting a medical provider and then working with a licensed pharmacy. Farmington Drugs & Medical Supplies takes pride in offering the most cost efficient services and prescriptions to our patients.

  • Dosage

    Cetirizine hydrochloride (cetirizine HCl) is the active ingredient of Zyrtec and is found as a crystalline white powder that is soluble in water. After oral administration, cetirizine reaches a maximum concentration roughly 1 hour and most of cetirizine in the plasma is found bound to proteins. Most cetirizine is excreted in the urine with an elimination half life of just over 8 hours. Zyrtec tablets are white and have a rectangular shape. Zyrtec is available as Zyrtec 5 mg tablets and Zyrtec 10 mg tablets (cetirizine hydrochloride 5 mg and cetirizine hydrochloride 10 mg respectively). Generally, the starting dose of Zyrtec is Zyrtec 5 mg or Zyrtec 10 mg daily. Zyrtec (cetirizine hydrochloride) tablets should be stored between 20° C and 25° C.
