Zyrtec Suicidal Ideation Causes and Reviews


Suicide is the tenth most common cause of death in the United States. People may consider suicide when they are hopeless and can't see any other solution to their problems. Often it's related to serious depression, alcohol or substance abuse, or a major stressful event.

People who have the highest risk of suicide are white men. But women and teens report more suicide attempts. If someone talks about suicide, you should take it seriously. Urge them to get help from their doctor or the emergency room, or call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255). It is available 24/7.

Therapy and medicines can help most people who have suicidal thoughts. Treating mental illnesses and substance abuse can reduce the risk of suicide.

Zyrtec Suicidal Ideation 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.

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.
