I was prescribed Cetirizine as a Non Drowsy anti histamine, two hours after taking a 10mg dose I fell asleep for 7 hours. I was at times aware of people but was unable to pull myself awake, when I finally managed to wake up I was disorentated, my balance was bad and my vision was affected, a minor side effect was my mouth was extremely dry.
It does say on the box they and I quote \" May affect your driving reaction time \", there was no leaflet enclosed with the medication.
I would like to warn people particularly those who are sole carers for small children or a reliant person about the possibility of this severe side effect, I personally will not take Cetirizine again.
