Should I Be Prescribed Zyrtec-d For Flu

I have prescribed with Zyrtec-D for flu. So far I do not feel better after taking this pill for two days. I also begin to experience mouth dryness and some hallicination. !) should this pill be prescribed for flu ? Should I continue ?

Answer

Zyrtec-D is not a flu medicine. Visit the Cold & Flu site to see medicines that are specifically for flu.

Zyrtec is an antihistamine used to relieve runny nose, sneezing, itchy eyes and the like. None of those are common flu symptoms, so I don't know why you were prescribed Zyrtec-D for the flu. Go back to your doctor and explain how you felt taking the medication. Perhaps there is something else that your doctor can prescribe.
