Question
I would like to know if the generic cetirizine which smells like vinegar, is poisonous?
thank you

Answer
Hi Danny,
Cetirizine does not have any odor. It is also a Hydrochloride and not an acetate, hence venigar residue is not there in cetirizine. I would suggest you return the tablets if possible or destroy them. Do not use them, they could be fake or damaged.
All the best
