Zyrtec - Overview

Zyrtec is a medication used in treating symptoms related to perennial and seasonal allergies as well as chronic urticaria. People who need the prescription version of Zyrtec, including generic Zyrtec, can use Push Health to connect with a medical provider who can prescribe Zyrtec tablets such as Zyrtec 10 mg when appropriate to do so.

What Is Zyrtec?

Zyrtec is a medication that contains the active ingredient cetirizine hydrochloride. Zyrtec is a metabolite of the antihistamine hydroxyzine and works by blocking H1 (histamine) receptors selectively in the periphery of the body. Zyrtec may help in relieving symptoms caused by chronic urticaria, seasonal and perennial allergic rhinitis. In function, Zyrtec is similar to the medications loratadine (Claritin), fexofenadine (Allegra), and levocetirizine (Xyzal).

Zyrtec - Dosage and Coupon

Following oral absorption, the active ingredient in Zyrtec generally reaches a peak concentration within 60 minutes and is found in the plasma mostly bound to proteins. Once metabolized, Zyrtec's metabolites are largely excreted in the urine although some can be found in the feces with an elimination half-life of under nine hours in many people. The typical starting dose is Zyrtec 5 mg or Zyrtec 10 mg daily although the exact regimen depends on the health needs of the patient and the judgement of the prescribing medical provider. Branded Zyrtec medication is relatively affordable, costing approximately 65 cents per Zyrtec 24 hour tablet at many pharmacies in the United States. Zyrtec coupons are sometimes available online or using a copay card. Insurance plans may also cover the costs associated with a Zyrtec medication prescription when prescribed by a medical provider.

For prescription Zyrtec, one cannot just buy Zyrtec online without a prescription.
