Is it ok to use Zyrtec [cetirizine] and losartan together at the same time? Can you use both cetirizine and losartan potassium?
Zyrtec (and the generic cetirizine), is a second generation antihistamine. This allergy medication is generally lower in side effects than older allergy medicines.
Losartan is a medication belonging to a class called ARBs. The ARBs are usually used to lower blood pressure and may be used in diabetics to prevent certain complications.
There is no interaction between the two medications and most people can take them safely together. However, one should always be mindful of adverse effects. The chance is extremely small and I wouldn’t expect anyone to have issues with them. If there was a problem I think it would most likely be increased drowsiness or the blood pressure dropping too low – causing dizziness or fainting.
Always be sure to speak with your doctor or pharmacist if you are unsure of what medication you can use together. Take the time to understand your medications and what potential issues to watch for.
