suscq:Plain Claritin and Plain Zyrtec (none with the D on the end) If you need a decongestant, you can take Plain Sudafed.
Is okay to during 1st trimester
This is a great website. It says Claritin is safe (Class B), Sudafed is not (Class C) and Benadryl is (Class B). Class A drugs have been tested on pregnant women and found safe (not many, because pregnant women don't usually like to be experimented on), Class B drugs have been tested on pregnant animals and been found safe, and Class C drugs have been tested on pregnant animals and been found to cause 'issues' (malformations, misscarriages etc), there are also class D drugs which have been tested on pregnant women and been found unsafe (also not a lot of these).
I took Benadry during the first trimester after a severe allergic reaction- the pharmacist and dr told me it was fine.
I stay on my singulair while pregnant because I have asthma and need to breathe. I know some use that as an allergy med too.
my last pg my OB told me I could take benadryl, but only when needed. Are you around cats all the time or just on occasion?
