  • my doctor said I could take benedryl, but only one tablet at a time, not two. Also, he originally said I could take Claritin, but as that stuff doesn't work for me, so I took the benedryl when I absolutely needed something, but I tried to keep to just using saline up my nose as much as I could. Sudefed is a category C medication for pregnancy, Claritin is a catergory B medication. But keep in mind, that different doctors will recommend different things. My doctor was always very conservative and didn't like to recommened very much medicines. Your doctor may be different and allow different things.
