I wouldn’t take it. From what I understand it is a drug that has shown to have adverse effects on animals but no studies have been done on humans so it is a ‘take if the benefits outweigh the risks” type of drug.  I would try and live with the allergies and rhinitis until you can go back to your doctor Monday and get something different.  To me the risks of harming your baby would outweigh the benefit of feeling better this weekend, sorry! Do you have a telehealth number you can call fo rmore information? We have one in Ontario but I’m not sure about Alberta, they might be able to help you.

Have you considered using a neti pot or another nasal irrigation device to wash your sinuses?  You can use plain warm water or a saline solution.  I have a special squirt bottle Amadeus by Neil Med that comes with some saline packets.  I know you can order it off Amazon if you can’t find it at the drug store.

I have horrible allergies and this makes a huge difference. I hate the idea of using a steroid nasal spray all the time.
