RE: Anyone take Benadryl/Claritin while pregnant?
I take Claritin daily, currently and did with DD as well, with the knowledge and consent of several different OBs. Occasionally I need Benadryl on top of it. I happen to be extremely sensitive to Benadryl, so I use the children's liquid formulation and take a 1/2 teaspoon.
Benadryl is very safe. Claritin is apparently not recommended because there are no studies showing its safety in pregnant women, but thats true of almost all meds. But anecdotal evidence suggests that it is safe.
