Zyrtec Pulmonary Embolism Causes and Reviews


A pulmonary embolism is a sudden blockage in a lung artery. The cause is usually a blood clot in the leg called a deep vein thrombosis that breaks loose and travels through the bloodstream to the lung. Pulmonary embolism is a serious condition that can cause

  • Permanent damage to the affected lung
  • Low oxygen levels in your blood
  • Damage to other organs in your body from not getting enough oxygen

If a clot is large, or if there are many clots, pulmonary embolism can cause death.

Half the people who have pulmonary embolism have no symptoms. If you do have symptoms, they can include shortness of breath, chest pain or coughing up blood. Symptoms of a blood clot include warmth, swelling, pain, tenderness and redness of the leg. The goal of treatment is to break up clots and help keep other clots from forming.

Zyrtec Pulmonary Embolism 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.
