Avatar f tn as well as afrin and a couple of allergy medicines (not all allergy medicines though)...every pregnancy is different though and every Dr is different as to what they prefer so I would definitely call.
Avatar f tn If it's allergy related you can take Claritin... Or however it is spelled. If it's cold related really you can only take Tylenol cold and flu. Web MD has a list... Here is the link
Avatar f tn Take allergy medicine. When my son turned 1 I was done breastfeeding so my doctor said antihistamine in medicine dries ur milk up. Get the nin drowsy kind. Took about a week.
Avatar f tn If u want to dry up ur milk completely then use allergy medicine cause it has antihistamines in it that dries up ur milk. I breastfed my son for a year and once he turned one he switched to cow milk and I used dollar general allergy medicine to dry up my milk and it took a few days.
Avatar f tn You can only take benedryl, nothing else.
Avatar f tn Can i take any type of non drowsy allergy medicine. I took a 24 hr non drowsy generic brand of allegra before i was pregnant? Can i still take it? I really am having a tough time with allergies without any medicine.
Avatar f tn If you have health conditions like aspirin allergy or kidney stones, check with a doctor before using cranberry for a health condition. Sweetened cranberry drinks can be high in calories and high-fructose corn syrup, and thus may be inadvisable for people with diabetes or weight problems. Interactions. If you take any drugs regularly, talk to your doctor before you start using cranberry supplements.
4545793 tn?1394592544 What are your ladies opinions on how our moms took care of us vs how things are done now with "modern medicine" and doctors perspection? My mom recently just told me that when I came home from the hospital she gave me water and continued giving me water after that and I know some moms gave their babies whole milk at an early age and we turned out idk its just kinda of like hmmm...why are doctors telling us to give our babies theses things at a later age ?
1394262 tn?1369625192 .I find that even though I gave birth in mid Dec last year, I am still suffering from excessive perspiration, so my body feels sweaty AND sticky all the time, even at night. Drats. It is really, really uncomfortable... :( Are there any mummies here still suffering from excessive perspiration despite giving birth a few months ago??? Please let me know. Another problem I have is my hives. I have been suffering from hives since last Dec when I gave birth.
Avatar n tn I know what you mean about not wanting to take medicine while breastfeeding, I too do not like taking medicine while breastfeeding - which meant I went a LONG time without many meds (except my thyroid med). Are you involved in any breastfeeding groups? What area do you live in if you don't mind me asking?
Avatar f tn If u want to dry ur milk up just take some over the counter allergy medicine. It has antihistamines in it and that drys up ur milk. I took the dollar general brand when my son turned 1 and switched to cow milk.
Avatar n tn I dont have an answere and I have same problem too. All I can do is stop all allergy shots or even medicine. My allergy get worse, but I want a baby badly. I'm on the first IVF because I'm failed all IUIs. I remember the last time I got shots about a year ago, and I got late AF that month. I noticed it to the nurse and doctor send me home without allergic shot then I know should have some thing related to pregnancy. I skip allergic treatment since then.
4244557 tn?1371701336 at the beginning of my pregnancy my doctor gave me a list of medications that were safe to take during pregnancy. for allergies she had 2 different shots listed and an over the counter medicine. I myself suffer from seasonal allergies and so does my friend who is due the end of July. I had told her that we could take the over the counter meds and she told me that we couldn't because allergy meds dry up the amniotic fluid. is that true or is it safe to take the medicine.
Avatar f tn If you took the medication for a few days 2 weeks ago and then stopped, my guess is that the rash is unrelated and could be viral or a different allergy. Usually allergic reactions will occur during the first 2 - 3 days of taking a medication. There are exceptions, but that the general time frame. I hope that helps some. Feel better. If the rash is itchy, there is a diabetic form of benadryl that you can take.
2136147 tn?1336405833 My sisters son did and she had the same thing with the no dairy while she was breastfeeding him. She is still breastfeeding her other son at 14 months!! but she hasnt given him cows milk yet I dont think. Heather that is the exact same thing my sister went thru with her son with the screaming all the time and upset tummy due to the dairy. Her friends daughter had the same thing. Hoping I dont have that because oh my I love milk!!!!!
1242373 tn?1268341867 use cotton balls NOT wipes and soak her but in it in a hallow bath several times a day. That is the best thing to clear it up believe me!! If you are breastfeeding then it can be an allergy from something you ate. She does nto need to go to the hospital but if I were you I would keep a diaper off her the most you can to get air on her bum. Just hold a towel beteen her legs or under her.
427382 tn?1298209586 My mom was watching that doctors show, and they said it was ok to eat p.b. during pregnancy but not while breastfeeding. HAs anyone else heard this. I know you aren't supposed to give it to babies, toddlers, but no one else has heard of not eating it while breastfeeding. Anyone here hear that? I will be very sad to hear no P.B. but would like to know.
