Just wanted to update everyone in case they want to try this (see original post). I went to an allergist who is having me take 4 TIMES the daily dose of Zyrtec – so 4 pills a day or 1 every 4-5 hours. She wants to do this for at least a month.
In case someone else wants to try it, I figured I’d pass on the info that according to her it is perfectly safe for me (aside from possible drowsiness) to take that high a dosage
[Editor’s Note: talk to your doctor before attempting this–it may not be safe or healthy for you, especially if you have pre-existing conditions, pregnancy, other medications, etc.].
I’ll also update this post to let you all know how it works for me. If you don’t want to try Zyrtec then make sure whatever you take contains Cetirizine. But again, I’d talk to your doctor about Zyrtec since that’s what she has me taking the quadruple dose of.
