I would talk to my doctor.  It doesn’t matter if something is prescription or OTC, suddenly stopping it can have bad consequences.

UA2Mizzou:  I’m pregnant now (due in July) and my midwife said that both Bendryll and Claritin are ok to take for allergies. They are Category B, which means there have not been any adverse effects show in pregnant women. That being said, some allergy meds can dry up your mucus membranes (nose, eyes) to lessen your allergy symptons so they can also dry up your cervical mucus as well, which could make conceiving a bit more difficult…..

PS You shouldn’t take aspirin or Advil (ibuprofen) but Tylenol is ok

UA2Mizzou:  I was on prescription medicine for bad allergies. As soon as I got my BFP I stopped taking them and asked my doctor. She said to stop taking them. As a pp said, there are meds you can take safely during pegnancy. I have chosen to go med free, so I suffer daily with sneezing and not being able to breathe, but it’s not as bad as it sounds. It is whatever you and your doctor decide is right for you. Good luck TTC!

AB Bride:  each to their own. I’m just giving my opinion and my experience, and not trying to downplay anything. Like I said, in the end, whatever you and a doctor decide is best.

SpringDaisy5:  Not being able to breathe is pretty serious.  I highly doubt you’re dealing with that on a daily basis and it does sound like you’re downplaying what others have to go through.

I’m in the drink til it’s pink club, and the same goes for meds. However, if I was taking something that was potentially very harmful, I’d probably either be testing early to stop it asap or as the doctor for an alternate prescription. 

Good luck TTC! It’s quite the roller coaster 😉
