What is cetirizine?
Cetirizine is an over-the-counter medication used to relieve allergy symptoms, such as runny nose, sneezing, itchy/watery eyes, and itching of the nose or throat.
Millions of Americans suffer from allergies every year. Allergies happen when your immune system gets confused. In some cases, your body may mistake harmless substances - like tree pollen or dog fur - as dangerous invaders. In this case, it may trigger an immune response to fend off the mistaken threat, causing you to feel many of the symptoms that make allergies a pain.
Tired of itching your eyes, blowing your nose, and clearing your throat? Talk to your doctor about whether cetirizine may be right for you.
