Zyrtec, a brand of cetirizine will soon be available without prescription.
The good news:
1) No doctor visit required to purchase this antihistamine.
2) Availability of a potent, low sedating anthistamine markedy increases.
3) Zyrtec is less sedating than many other OTC antihistamines and is available in a once daily preparation. Loratadine is the only other once daily low or non-sedating antihistamine available OTC (but less potent compared to Zyrtec according to a number of clinical trials).
