Q.

ZYRTEC SIDE EFFECTS

My baby is now almost 11 months old. She had eczema which seems to be under control now (never had it that bad - only slightly). Doctor prescribed Zyrtec to control it about 4 months ago. Since then baby wakes almost every half hour during the night and during naps during the day - she immediately settles as soon as she gets a few sips of juice, milk or water. she eats very well. Is it maybe the Zyrtec causing her to be very thirsty? Can I stop the Zyrtec if the eczema is gone?

You can certainly stop the Zyrtec now.
