My doctor said Benedryl only, and at a 1/2 dose.

Your best bet would be to call your ob to see what he says. Different doctors will allow for different medications depending on the pros/cons of using each. I had an allergic reaction when I was pregnant and took both benadryl and claritin (loratadine).

I also suffer from allergies. Mine get really bad during the fall, and when I was pregnant a couple years ago, my doctor told me that Rhinocort nasal spray was “pretty much the only thing I could take.” I know I’ll have to switch to using it again this fall because I’m pregnant again. It does work well, it’s just not the allergy medicine that I normally prefer. Good luck feeling better from those allergies!
