Today is day one of trying to wean myself off Zyrtec. Every time I’ve tried to go cold turkey I end up so horribly itchy all over that I can’t stand it after a few days and go back to the Zyrtec. This time I’m trying a step down approach. Last night I only took half a pill and I’ll continue that for at least two weeks before trying to take a half-pill every other day. Right now I’m already wicked itchy but I think it’s more to do with the mosquito bites that currently cover most of my body.
Zyrtec is a helluva drug, kids. After each of my surgeries I had to break a burgeoning addiction to Percocet and that was easy compared to coming off Zyrtec. I really wouldn’t recommend this drug to anyone.
