  • I take benadryl every day. I also often take Sudaphed.
    I have horrible allergies, My regular drugs daily include singulair, nasonex, and clairinex. Currently I'm on Zyrtec, but soon back to the clairinex.
    Just in case you were wondering, I'm 7 months pregnant with my 3rd. I've taken all these allergy meds through all my pregnancies.

  • Benedryl is safe but I wouldn't take it every day because it can make the baby drowsy. You can always call the pharmacist and see what they say.
