Can I take levocetirizine with methadone?

Use of levocetirizine with alcohol or other agents that exhibit central nervous system (CNS) depressant effects may result in additive impairment of mental alertness and performance. Several studies have shown no effect of racemic cetirizine on cognitive function, motor performance, or sleep latency as indicated by objective measurements. However, there have been reports of somnolence, fatigue, and asthenia in some patients treated with levocetirizine in clinical trials.

However please seek more info from the doc/pharmacist who prescribed the meds, take care.

Best wishes!
