Zyrtec Dry Mouth Causes and Reviews


Dry mouth is the feeling that there is not enough saliva in your mouth. Everyone has a dry mouth once in a while - if they are nervous, upset or under stress. But if you have a dry mouth all or most of the time, it can be uncomfortable and can lead to serious health problems.

Symptoms of dry mouth include

  • A sticky, dry feeling in the mouth
  • Trouble chewing, swallowing, tasting, or speaking
  • A burning feeling in the mouth
  • A dry feeling in the throat
  • Cracked lips
  • A dry, rough tongue
  • Mouth sores
  • An infection in the mouth

Dry mouth is not a normal part of aging. Causes include some medicines, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and nerve damage. Salivary gland diseases, Sjogren's syndrome, HIV/AIDS, and diabetes can also cause dry mouth. Treatment depends on the cause. Things you can do include sipping water, avoiding drinks with caffeine, tobacco, and alcohol, and chewing sugarless gum or sucking on sugarless hard candy.

Zyrtec Dry Mouth Reviews

Fri, 21 May 2010

I took one dose and experienced a bout of pancreatitis. I suffer from chronic pancreatitis and know what most of my "triggers" are.....never thought a simple allergy medication would cause such a problem, I think I would rather suffer allergies than risk pancreatitis.

Sat, 05 Nov 2011

Started on Zyrtec on the suggestion of my dermatologist for treatment of hives. Rash that resulted from the Zyrtec a MILLION times worse than the original hives. Had the same reaction to Seldane.

Tue, 09 Feb 2010

I have Type 2 Diabetes, when taking my level in the morning I noticed my level was elevated, and the only thing I had ingested was a Zyrtec pill about 2 hours prior? Could the pill be the cause?

Wed, 03 Dec 2008
Does Zyrtec inrease blood sugar levels? I have been taking 10m a day for 10 days and have notices symptoms of high blood sugar, when tested it was in the high 100's. Has anyone heard of this side effect?
Sat, 13 Aug 2011
I have had and am having a bad reaction to Zyrtec. My eyes are inflamed and my throat is sore. Lips are swollen. My tongue is white. I will be forced to go to the Emergency at the hospital.
Sun, 28 Mar 2010
I took Zyrtec for a week and while it does solve my allergy issues, it makes me a raving lunatic. Severe aggression, mood swings, and nightmares are the norm for me n this medicine. I would not recommend it if you are taking any anti anxiety or anti depressants.
Mon, 23 May 2011
