    Zyrtec-How long until it kicks in?

    I have been recently diagnosed with allergies and given Zyrtec. I took my first one last night and woke up today, doing my usual thing and I get PND again as I have the past two days. It wasn't as bad as normal, but still....

    How long before Zyrtec 'kicks in' and I don't have any symptoms?

    It will take a few days. Make sure to drink plenty of water to help thin out the PND.

    I've just started taking zyrtec and I got almost immediate relief from my chronic sinus congestion. However I just paid for my first prescription (the doc had given me some samples) and I don't think I'll be able to take it every other day like I do now. It's expensive- even with insurance!
