allergy

I just found out yesterday that we are expecting... I have to take a benedryl or zyertec every night or I will wake up through the night having trouble breathing and itching from my throat down my chest and on my back.. Coughing and weezing for over an hour.. Will it be a problem taking the allergy med still?? I will be calling monday to make an appt and talk to the dr about it i just want to know if i should still take them over the weekend before i get in.

  • my doctor said you can take benadryl, sudafed, tylenol, and robutussin. When you go in on Monday you could ask about your particular allergy med. Congrats!

  • The Zyrtec is fine to take. It's what I'm on so I don't scratch myself to the point of bleeding.

  • do you know the source of your allergies? laundry det, cleaning products, milk...sometimes eliminating these things can change your life forever.
