Who should not take cetirizine and pseudoephedrine?

People who are allergic to cetirizine and pseudoephedrine or the drug hydralazine should not take the medication. People with certain medical conditions, including severe hypertension, advanced coronary artery disease, narrow-angle glaucoma, or who are not able to urinate, should not take cetirizine and pseudoephedrine. If, within the previous two weeks, you have taken a monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI) such as isocarboxazid, phenelzine, rasagiline, selegiline, or tranylcypromine, you should not use cetirizine and pseudoephedrine. Cetirizine and pseudoephedrine is not recommended to be used in children under 12 years of age without the advise of a doctor. Cetirizine and pseudoephedrine should be used with caution in the elderly as they are more sensitive to the side effects.
