A little background of this story. I deal with a lot of nasal congestion and pressure in my left ear, which is aggravated during pregnancy. Im 29 weeks along. My eustatian tube is too small and is easily stopped up by any swelling in my nasal cavity. I've taken nasonex and claritin to deal with this problem in the past, but I'm only taking Claritin now. The stopped up ear has become a very persistent problem and so I visited an Ear, Nose, and Throat dr. He prescribed nasonex. I called my OB and he oked the nasonex as well as prescribed Allegra d and a z pack because he was worried about infection. Well I checked the nasonex and Allegra d online and found out they are both category c drugs. My previous OB never prescribed c drugs and very rarely prescribed b drugs. Obviously this dr views the drugs differently. Earlier in my pregnancy, he prescribed 2 other category c drugs, without letting me know of the risk. I'm very torn about this situation. I desperately want this condition to get better. It's a constant annoyance and I'm also concerned about risk of infection in my ears. However, I worry that it might cause problems with my baby. I don't know if I should just trust the dr or refuse the treatment. I'm even wondering if I need to switch drs because he's prescribing category c drugs without making me aware of the risk. Any opinions? Please be kind. I'm really trying to seek the best option for me and baby.
