prednisone and zyrtec??

I'm wondering if anyone takes zyrtec along with a short course of prednisone?

I'm on only 10mg of prednisone due to being super med-sensitive and having arrythmia issues. I'm also on singulair, q-var,and nasacort. I have to say that my lungs feel better but my sinuses still feel pretty congested. It's day two and my dr. said I should take this dose for 5 days.

Just curious if anyone else is on a similar med combination

There should be no problem taking the two together. An antihistamine is often prescribed along with the need for steroids when there is an inflammation.

Re: prednisone and zyrtec??


I'm sorry for all the questions. I haven't had a flare like this in years. I already had to call my dr. again today because I keep feeling like my throat is swollen and it's hard to swallow. He said to skip the q-var inhaler for the next two days to give my throat a break. It doesn't look like there's any thrush in my throat, it just feels tight and swollen. He's having me use some nystatin to be on the safe side. I am such a mess right now!

Thanks again.
