Zyrtec Syrup

Zyrtec® (cetirizine hydrochloride) is a non-prescription drug licensed to treat allergy symptoms (such as runny nose, itchy eyes, and sneezing) and itching due to hives, which may or may not be related to allergies.
 
The medication comes in several different forms, including Zyrtec syrup, tablets, and chewable tablets. Some people only need to take this medicine during allergy season, while others need to take it all year long. It is usually taken by mouth once a day.
 
Zyrtec is an antihistamine, which means it blocks histamine from binding to histamine receptors and causing allergy symptoms. It is also effective for alleviating itching caused by hives, since histamines are also responsible for the formation of hives.
 
While most people tolerate Zyrtec well, side effects are possible. The most common side effects that have been reported with this medication include dry mouth, fatigue, and drowsiness.
