Zyrtec Urticaria Causes and Reviews


Hives are red and sometimes itchy bumps on your skin. An allergic reaction to a drug or food usually causes them. Allergic reactions cause your body to release chemicals that can make your skin swell up in hives. People who have other allergies are more likely to get hives than other people. Other causes include infections and stress.

Hives are very common. They usually go away on their own, but if you have a serious case, you might need medicine or a shot. In rare cases, hives can cause a dangerous swelling in your airways, making it hard to breathe - which is a medical emergency.


Zyrtec Urticaria 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.

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?

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.
