Zyrtec Question
MrsWhiteCastle posted:
The allergist recently put Emily on Zyrtec for her coughing.

Do you think that being on Zyrtec everyday would lessen a reaction if she came in contact with tree nuts?

I'm just curious.

Hi MrsWhiteCastle,

My own experience, I think the Zyrtec helps control my food issues. Recently I went off Zyrtec/Zyrtec D to prepare for appt at Mt Sinai on monday. Foods that normally don't cause any reactions seem to be slightly bothersome. It is a question I also have and will ask on monday? Amazing how you think a pill doesn;t do much until you don't take it. I tried vacuuming on tuesday and my allergies and asthma had a fit! So, no cleaning until after my appt.

Hope this helps. If I get a clear answer, I will post.
Take care.
Adult with food allergies and asthma.
