Is Zyrtec (Cetirizine) safe to use long term? My child

Is Zyrtec (Cetirizine) safe to use long term? My child is 3 years old and will often get bouts of cough, usually late at night. A doctor said to give him Zyrtec 5ml once a day. All his symptoms stop or are reduced when he is taking Zyrtec, but when he stops the symptoms return after a few days.
