Zyrtec is way better that the low price shit cetrizine
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.
