Is it safe to use Cetirizine for pimples?

Hi,Five years ago i was suffering from pimples. In order to treat it i went to a dermatologist who gave me few medicines. The moment i had my first dose i had severe itching on my body right from head to toe. I immediately rushed to doctor, who prescribed me cetrazine. I had been using from the past five years and i am really worried regarding its side effects. As of now i don t have any but im really afraid of my future health. Dosage : Initially 1 tablet per day. But i had decreased it gradually and now it came to around half tablet for three days.I had consulted various doctors and had undergone various tests (all most all the tests related to blood). But none of them turned to be fruitful.Kindly do help me in this regard.Thanks in advance.Best Regards,Challa Purushotham 0000 YYYY@YYYY

Hi

You can use cetrizine half a tablet for three days as you have mentioned. You have not mentioned about the name of drugs prescribed for pimples and whether you are continuing the same. Cetrizine can be taken but the other drugs should be stopped.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
