Serious Reactions to Zyrtec Eye Drops

Serious Side Effects

Zyrtec Eye Drops are unlikely to cause serious problems. However, as with any medication, be sure to seek immediate medical attention if you develop any signs of a serious allergic reaction to Zyrtec Eye Drops. These signs might include:
 
  • Unexplained rash or hives
  • Itching (more than the usual itching related to eye allergies)
  • Unexplained swelling, especially of the mouth, lips, or throat
  • Wheezing or difficulty breathing.
     
Of course, any eye drop can cause problems if it is contaminated, such as an eye infection, so be sure to avoid touching the tip of the dropper to any surface, including the surface of the eye or your fingers. Never use an eye drop that has become cloudy or discolored.
 

Final Thoughts

You may experience some or none of the side effects listed in this article. Unfortunately, there is no way for you or your healthcare provider to know beforehand if you will have problems with a medicine that you have never tried.
 
Therefore, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects while using the drug or if something "just does not seem right." While it may not be a side effect of Zyrtec Eye Drops, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
