Zyrtec Asthma Causes and Reviews


Asthma is a chronic disease that affects your airways. Your airways are tubes that carry air in and out of your lungs. If you have Asthma, the inside walls of your airways become sore and swollen. That makes them very sensitive, and they may react strongly to things that you are allergic to or find irritating. When your airways react, they get narrower and your lungs get less air.

Symptoms of Asthma include

  • Wheezing
  • Coughing, especially early in the morning or at night
  • Chest tightness
  • Shortness of breath

Not all people who have Asthma have these symptoms. Having these symptoms doesn't always mean that you have Asthma. Your doctor will diagnose Asthma based on lung function tests, your medical history, and a physical exam. You may also have allergy tests.

When your Asthma symptoms become worse than usual, it's called an Asthma attack. Severe Asthma attacks may require emergency care, and they can be fatal.

Asthma is treated with two kinds of medicines: quick-relief medicines to stop Asthma symptoms and long-term control medicines to prevent symptoms.

Zyrtec Asthma Reviews

Wed, 12 May 2010
I have a 12 year old son who took Zyrtec for year-round allergies. He now has tourettes syndrome and we strongly feel the Zyrtec played a role in this health issue. I started searching the web for info regarding Zyrtec and tourettes when I discovered eight boys in our area who all have allergies, Asthma, have taken Zyrtec or clariten and now have tourettes. My son is now off of Zyrtec, but has not been able to find any relief from his tourettes. He is not able to be in school and we are actively searching for a way to reduce his tics. We have tried supplements, biofeedback, diet, chiropractic care, and have worked with several doctors. If anyone has found relief, please please share!!! He is missing to much of his life.
