  • I've been taking Zyrtec everyday since the beginning of December 2013, I just stopped because I found out it was addictive, my last Zyrtec was on Thursday night, since Saturday I've been experiencing severe nausea and headaches along with itching on my head, I would like to know if these symptoms can be related to Zyrtec withdrawl.
