I went several pages in this forum looking for anything related to this but didn't see anything, so im posting this question. I have really bad allergies during both spring and fall. And where I live spring is early. I am 9 weeks in and don't know what to take if any that i can. Anyone that can help would be great. Oh and it has to be D kind cause not just the sneezing, but get congested real bad.
Benadryl is safe, but it usually knocks me on my ass, so I only take it if I have to.
Claritin is safe. I took it through both of my pregnancies. Benadryl is also safe.
My doctor prescribed me both benedryl and claritin so...I would assume those ones are safe. NOT Claritin-D though...I can't remember why :/
Quoting Just Ames:" It's not recommended if you have high blood pressure."
That must be it. I couldn't remember lol
ok need something non Drowsy..and Benedryl does that to me. And i need a Decongestant. If i don't fall asleep with benedryl i usually am like out of it like not sure what is going on..that is a problem. I work during the day and need to keep on top of what i am doing or customers are telling me over the phone.

Sudaphed (sp?) is supposed to be safe when you're pregnant
Ugh Benadryl knocked me out for over 12hrs this weekend. I could NOT even wiggle my fingers or toes, but I stopped itching :) non drowsy? I take some children's OTC liquid allergy stuff. Just a few sips bc even that knocks me out. Idk if its "safe" during pregnancy but its never hurt anything.
Regular Claritin, zyrtec, & benadryl.
