  • I was told Claritin (plain, not D or anything) was fine while I was pregnant.

  • Check with your dr, especially since you are in your first trimester, but my dr recommended benadryl as okay and a friend of mine was okay'ed on claritin by her dr. Not sure what others are out there - but please check with your OB!!

  • My OB recommended Zyrtec.
    There are a lot of OTC you can take for just about anything after consulting with either Doc or Pharmacist

  • You should not take ANY drug without consulting your doctor first when you are pregnant. A simpple phone call will get you the answers you need.

  • Call your OB to find out what they recommend. I don't recall having any allergies when I was pregnant, but your Dr's office should be able to inform you of what medications are safe to take while pregnant.
