Zyrtec is way better that the low price shit cetrizine
Zyrtec is the best of all the alergy pills i have used. yes it kinda makes you sleepy but, it doesnt fuck up your brain as sleeping pills do! Cetrizine is a low price shit without any effect! i personally recommend Zyrtec as it works and i have no problems whatsoever with it, for all the years that i have used it!

Lots of times with many not all but many of the generic brands don't use as much of the active ingredient to save $$$$ for the drug companies. This mainly happens with prescription drugs and not OTC meds. That's probably y the generic does not work as well for u.

Zyrtec is just a brand name. Cetirizine HCL is the chemical name. They are one and the same. Just like Advil is the brand name for Ibuprofen.
