Zyrtec oral for under 5 years old kid

I am doing a research for the subject medicine.

Do you have the encounter with this medicine?

Tell me your experience.

Or, just help me to look up medical information.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I can't understand why people keep asking for medical advice on a site for solving IT problems!

Paul, I think it's because a similar question has been asked that this site comes up high in the list of those that may supply an appropriate answer. Yes this is an IT site, but realise that IT is involved in many disciplines. Someone who came here looking for advice on how to improve his medical database might be a competent doctor in 'real life'.  Some one who comes here asking a medical question might have exactly the answer you will need next week for an unexpected event at your home.
I don't think your comment helped answer the question. You would be better to answer as best you know how stating that you have no medical experience, or better not to comment at all so other experts with experience in this field can give a proper answer. Now this question has two unhelpful comments ( ypurs and mine) and won't be opened by many who could perhaps help.

Do you want to know about the branded drug or cetirizine generically? - Specifically in paediatric medicine?  General use or specifically for management of allergy or vertigo or as a sedative agent?

I am doing a research for the subject medicine at what level? For your own interest or are you being employed to do this? Is this an under 5 year old  relative you're talking about?

Your guess is correct.

It is just my personal interest as the drug concerned is a non-prescribed drug and I want to know more about it for any side effect for kid (my daughter) as I might not have the time to dig the info deep enough for a more thorough understanding.

I know that doctor advice might be better but it is likely some members have medical background whom might give me some insights.
☠ MASQ ☠Commented:
In low dose cetirizine is pretty safe, so much so that it's often used not for the direct affect of the drug but one of its secondary effects.  The term "side-effects" generally relates to the unwanted effects of any drug.

Why is it being used in your case?

"I might not have the time g  dig the info deep enough for a more thorough understanding."
This is never a good idea, you really should know what any drug does before taking it or giving it to someone else.
