Zyrtec Chewable Tablets

Zyrtec® (cetirizine hydrochloride) is a medication often used to relieve symptoms of allergies, such as runny nose, itchy or watery eyes, sneezing, and itchy nose or throat. It is also approved for the treatment of itching due to hives (which may or may not be related to allergies).
There are many different forms of Zyrtec: chewable tablets, tablets, and syrup. The drug, which is available over the counter, is typically taken by mouth once a day. Some people need to take the medication all year long, while others only need to take it during allergy season.
Histamine is responsible for causing allergy symptoms and the formation of hives. As an antihistamine, Zyrtec works to treat allergy symptoms and to alleviate itching caused by hives by blocking histamine from binding to histamine receptors.
