irritable bowel syndrome, side effects of the dru

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query.
The possible causes for your problem are :
- Irritable bowel syndrome.
-Hormonal imbalance, mainly thyroid hormonal abnormality.
- Side effects of the drugs you are using.
Both zyrtec (cetirizine) and clariton (loratadine) are anti- allergic medicines.
And better to avoid simultaneous use of them, as that can increase the side effects.
-Psychological factors like stress and strain.
You once consult general surgeon, get examined and go for ultrasound.
If he suggests go for thyroid profile once.
Possibly by this workup the cause of your problem can be identified and treated.
Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer followup queries. If you are satisfied with my answer give your review at the end of the discussion.
Take care.
