Side Effects
My joint pain was so severe that I couldn't easily get up from a kneeling position. In addition, I started to wonder if I might soon be a candidate for hip replacement surgery. About a week ago, I saw a link for an article about ways to live to 100 and chose not to click because I didn't see the point of living that long with the level of pain I had. I finally correlated the onset of my symptoms with the purchase and use of Zyrtec. I have been off the drug for 5 days now and sure enough, my allergic symptoms have returned but, with respect to my joints, I feel like the Tin Man did after Dorothy oiled him. The prescribing information for Zyrtec says joint pain was observed infrequently (less than 2%) during the trial study but I feel if just one in 100 (1%) or even one in 1,000 (.1%) have the joint pain I've experienced, it's way too many.

Additional Thoughts
Zyrtec is one of the few non-drowsy allergy meds that actually works but it needs a warning label about possible unexpected and debilitating side effects such as joint pain.

Severe leg pain to the point of not getting out of bed. I thought something was really wrong. I stopped taking the zyrtec and my legs were better. My allergies were so bad yesterday that I took a zyrtec and today I can hardly stand the pain in my legs.

Additional Thoughts
I feel totally duped by the manufacturers of this product...I've searched and searched for answers to my strange brew of symptoms & realize now (after some research) that this so called medication is probably the culprit! A word of warning to those quitting cold turkey...it won't be easy...I'm on day 5 and I have been having horrible withdrawal with intense itching. allergies? what allergies? I would take my allergies any day over the misery I have put myself through over the years. My bad :0(

Side Effects
Over a period of approximately three and a half to four years I started suffering foot, leg pain, extreme fatigue, confusion, mood swings. I've been to all kinds of doctors, foot doctor, nuelogist, cat scan, then read a post on zyrtec, stopped taking the medication and within a few days all the symptoms were gone. My quality of life was a nightmare before. I do not recommend this drug.
