Seems incomplete! What are the side effects that I may have too much of those drugs? I only weigh 130#
Expert:  Dr. C. Rollins replied 8 months ago.

I'll be happy to help you with your follow up question. The typical side effects from Zyrtec are tiredness (11%), fatigue (5%), dry mouth (2%) and dizziness (2%). There are no drug interactions between Zyrtec and Claritin and taking the two together will not change side effects or harm you in any way. Hopefully this is a more complete answer you were seeking. Feel free to ask any more questions you might have. Thanks.
