Can I take benadryl for my allergies while I am pregnant?

I usually take zrytec, but I ran out of it so now I only have benadryl in my house.

  • yes you can. well i had the stomach flu and i asked my doc what to take and he gave me a few names of drugs i can take, and one of them was benadryl. i told him i can't take benadry cause i'm allergic to it. lol sorry, that was a bit off topic.=P
