My Dr. prescribed generic Zantac & Zyrtec for my unexplained

Customer Question

My Dr. prescribed generic Zantac & Zyrtec for my unexplained itching that I have had for years. It helped for for a short time, maybe 3 months, and now the itching is back again. I purchased the Zyrtec from another store and thought that maybe that was the problem. I then purchased it from the first store and I still have the same problem, still itching. What gives?
JA: What are all the symptoms you're experiencing (e.g. loss of appetite, fever, rash)?
Customer: Just the itching, my nose, eyes, arms. No rash or fever. Just constant itching. I do have 25mg hydroxyzine HCL that I do take if it gets too bad.
JA: How long have you had a fever? Do you have any respiratory symptoms?
Customer: No fever or respiratory symptoms.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I have been seeing the same Dr. for about 5 years. Have yearly exams with her.
