    Hi Russell,

     

    Thank you for your question. High blood pressure is a possible side effect of Zyrtec. If you already have high blood pressure, you should avoid taking Zyrtec unless instructed to do so by your doctor.

     

    Best of luck,

    Casey

      Casey,

       

      Can Zyrtec by itself cause raise in blood pressure? I know Zyrtec-D does because of the D element in it. I am asking because i have noticed a spike in my BP since a couple of days ago I started taking regular Zyrtec [not Zytec-D]
