  • I take the generic which is Loratadine. It helps so much with the allergies that are out there. Works for me.

  • Claritin or Zyrtec (or their generic counterparts) are safe to take during pregnancy according to most OBs. Considering everyone is different and people have different reactions to different drugs, I would still clear it with your own OB. Mine has me taking Zyrtec, but I know that Claritin doesn't work for me.
