Q.

Zyrtec and Deselex

Hello,
Are these two anti-histamines very different? My daughter doesnt respond so well to zyrtect but her friend is on deselex also for nasal allergies. You said in a previous mail that deselex doent make sleepy? Zyretc does as far as i know?

Zyrtec is also a non-sedating antihistamine. It is a very effective and safe antihistamine. If your daughter has a definite allergic nasal problem she should respond well to Zyrtec.
