What I found to help get off zyrtec was plantain capsules for itching/allergies and black radish supplement pills to detox my liver. Took them about a month and take nothing now. :)

What allergy medicine did you switch to after zyrtec? My son is 15, has severe allergies and has been on zyrtec for at least 13 of his years. He is showing symptoms of hyperthyroidism.
Lori on Jul, 30, 2011:
I was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism in March 2011, 3 different sets of labs and an ultrasound and
I have 2 nodules. I had been on Zyrtec daily for almost 3 years. I have been off the Zyrtec for 3 months and my labs came back with all normal levels on my thyroid. Ultrasound shows nodules are still there. Do you think the Zyrtec caused the nodules and hyperthyroid? Zyrtec was very hard to get off of, I did cold turkey!
