Over-the-Counter Zyrtec

Zyrtec® (cetirizine hydrochloride) is an antihistamine approved to treat allergy symptoms such as runny nose, sneezing, and itchy or watery eyes.
 
Although the medication was originally available by prescription only, it is now available over the counter. Zyrtec is now significantly less expensive because prices typically drop as soon as a medication becomes available in OTC (over-the-counter) form.
 
While OTC versions of drugs often come in lower strengths (compared to their prescription counterparts), with Zyrtec, the full prescription strength is available without a prescription.
 
It is important to keep in mind that in almost all situations, insurance companies will not cover OTC Zyrtec. However, there may be exceptions. For example, many state Medicaid programs choose to cover certain OTC products in order to save on cost.
