Anyone use Benodril while preggers?

My dd got into some poison Ivy I think because now I have a rash on my arm, and I'm allergic to poison ivy. If I dont take care of it I will blow up like a balloon. I'm going to ask my OB if it is safe to use benodril but I was wondering if anyone on here has used it while being pregnant?

  • No. My dr recommends Zyrtec instead. He says no Benadryl while pregnant or nursing.
