  • never took it while pregnant i suggest taking a pregnancy test and if its positive calling your dr to make sure its safe to take still. only your dr can tell you whats safe to take while pregnant.

  • i took it for a week before i even found out i was pregnant! I had a tooth infection and was put on it for that...i ound out i was pregnant and had to postpone getting my tooth pulled! But ive read up on it, and it should be fine! Everything if fine with my baby!

  • yes the alegra is not good to be taking.. especially in the first trimester so you should stop as soon as possible! call a doctor and ask them what you can take usually Tylenol is the only medicine recommended during pregnancy. But check with a doctor as well

  • First off, don't worry over something that may not be, finish your antibiotics as prescribed, find out if you are pregnant and consult your OB about the allergy medicine.....some women do much worse things before finding out they are pregnant and have healthy pregnancies and babies
