Common Questions and Answers about Can i take zyrtec d while pregnant


Avatar n tn I am alittle over 10 weeks pregnant and my allergies are miserable. I know I can take benadryl and believe my I do but I can't take it during the day because it makes me sleepy. Can people out there tell me if there is anything else I can take. Have any of you had to take allergy medicine? I am at my wits end.
7520331 tn?1395105588 My doctor told me i can take claritin. Not Clsritin D, but the regular claritin.
Avatar n tn I have found that extreme changes in weather patterns also greatly affect me. I take hydrocodone APAP 500 for my headaches. I also take Cymbalta, it is a depression medication that is also used for neuropathic pain. Of course, having this condition is enough to make a person get depressed! I hope this has helped!
Avatar f tn There's certain allergy medicines that are ok to take while pregnant. I know benadryl is one of them not sure what the others are.
Avatar n tn Now, my wife is already pregnant for 10 weeks.
Avatar n tn WRONG. For 4 weeks I did not weigh myself while I pressed on with my plan (as I can be a bit of a scale watcher). But after 4 weeks of not weighing myself, taking in less carbs, and exercising I knew I was not progressing... could just FEEL the stagnation. Well, I finally DID weigh myself just 4 days ago and durning that 4 week cycle I not only showed zero progress I ACTUALLY GAINED 15 POUNDS!!!!!! That's right - 15 in 4 weeks! I've never gained like this in my life!!
Avatar f tn Hi I recently found out im about 6 weeks pregnant and I stopped taking my allergy medication (zyryec-D) because I didn't know if it was safe to take while pregnant. The only problem is, is that I'm having the worst time because everything triggers me to sneeze or rub my eyes and at night it's especially bad because I can't breathe as easily as I was able to while on my allergy medication. I don't have an appointment with a doctor for a few weeks and I haven't gotten a chance to ask.
Avatar f tn I am a major allergy sufferer! Clarifying and Zyrtec are safe to take. However! Do not get the ones with the "D" added onto them (claritin d) because that is either not studied enough yet or not recommended. I take claritin as needed. "They" say it might be bad for allergies this spring with the late start. Exercise indoors. Take care and hopeb this is helpful. We are also allowed Benadryl but that you would need to call about. ...
Avatar n tn He ended up prescribing me zythromax antibiotic, over the counter mucinex-D, and another OTC allergy med. This really did nothing that I can recall other than perhaps take away some of my fatigue. A week later, still with the original symptoms, I saw an ENT who cleaned my wax-packed ears out and prescribed me Omnicef antibiotic and OTC afrin which I have been on for 9 days now and have not experienced any improvement.
Avatar f tn Years' prior to this I would go for an annual physical and a trip or 2 to the doctor for a sinus infection. I have seasonal allergies that I take zyrtec or xyzol for when needed. I don't really take any other meds except a daily vitamin when I remember. My labs have all come back okay so not my thyroid or potassium levels. I went to the doctor in late July because I felt like I was vibrating or better yet had buzzing in my R cheek and a migraine.
Avatar n tn If it is allergies you can take antihistamines like Benadryl while you're pregnant. I take it every day for my allergies.
3168718 tn?1363557644 Hi ladies have any of you had a cold while pregnant? I have a bad cold & it feels like a fever wants 2 come..I just feel miserable..please tell me what types of things you ladies have tried besides taking Tylenol..I really want this cold gone..
Avatar n tn I mentioned it to my allergies few years ago, and she prescribed zyrtec (antihistamine). It helps all my allergies, including the water allergy. If I take the zyrtec every day, I do not itch and there are not red spots or hives. Zyrtec does make you quiet a bit tired, but you can take it before you go to bed.
4654011 tn?1357646722 But I asked my doctor what I could take and she gave me a list of things pregnant woman can take.. Benadryl Claritin Claritin D Zyrtec Zyrtec D you don't have to get the name brands you can get the store brands of all these still works.. She said they are safe to take and not harmful to the baby at all... Benadryl makes me sleepy and I have come imune to it from taking it alot as a kid for my allergies but Claritin works great and it doesn't make you sleepy. :) hope this helps.

1684282 tn?1505701570 I have discovered that if I go more than 10 or 12 hours without my tramadol I begin getting a headache which progresses to nausea, upset stomach and a generally not feeling well, to the point that I have to lie down. Sometimes I even have cold sweats and chills. I have found myself taking one just to relieve those symptoms I am concerned that I am dependent on the tramadol and it doesn’t look like I am going to get rid of the pain, and the need, any time soon.
Avatar n tn However there's two activities that i practice each time i can and i do not notice myself yawning or trying to yawn while performing this two activities: swimming or having sex. Any suggestions....?

Avatar f tn It is 4 a.m. and I am desperately trying to figure out why I continue to break out in hives and have joint pain in my elbows, feet, hands and legs. I too started breaking out in hives after taking the antibotic Solodyn for acne. After a trip to the ER, it was assumed that I had an alergic reaction to the medicine. I stopped taking the medicine after only 3 weeks and needless to say, I am still breaking out in hives and have joint pain. I have been tested for allergies and that was negative.
Avatar m tn The spasm cough causes it all and when it goes away (usually 4 to 5 days) things are relatively normal although a normal cough stays with me for weeks after. I notice if I catch it early (which means I carry antibiotics with me all the time) it is not as nearly as bad. Doctors have diagnosed this as Asthma, chronic bronchitis, bronchial asthma etc etc. All different specialists seem to have a different prognosis and the recommended pills over the years have not really done any good.
Avatar dr m tn Any sudden, or abrupt change in your sleep-breathing status can cause an autonomic nervous system imbalance that can bring about these same fevers, hot flashes, chills and sweating. How does your typical cold start? Please enter your experiences below in the comments box.
Avatar m tn I have been taking prednisone for the last few days, I guess that’s to help with swelling and bleeding but I’m not real sure. I take 10 pills a day (50mg) and I find they make me very moody, tired and make me want to pee. Dec. `12th, since I’m going to be bed ridden for a few days you’d think that I would be out doing something, but nope, I’m on the computer watching videos and reading blogs on sinus surgery and septoplasty, geesh.
Avatar f tn I was told anything that says tylenol on it i can take and mucinex. So i took tylenol cold & cough. Also you can buy saline mist, which is just salt water & spray it up ur nose to unclog your nose.
Avatar n tn I get real bad spring allergies.. (D*mn trees) I am not pregnant yet.. What meds are allowed to take for allergies during pregnancy?? I am on CD8 and will be TTC within the next 2 weeks. I am taking clarinex right now but will stop once i know i am pregnant.. Any advice will be appreciated!! thanks Staci PS thanks for all the Happy Birthday's Yesterday!!
Avatar f tn I still wake up 4-5 hours later to take another dose to get me through the rest of the night. ZYRTEC take it during the day. I take the 24 hour pill. Within in a hour the my legs feel better and I am not as irritable through out the day. It is an antihistamine and counters the receptors that make your legs twinge. It's also non- addictive and stops the sniffels and watery eyes.
Avatar n tn I am so miserable. The only thing I can take is zyrtec and benadryl which don't offer much relief. I am only 5 weeks and I am miserable and on the verge of losing my mind. The chances of me having hives for the remainder of my pregnancy is high. I try my very best to deal with the discomfort by using gentle soaps, taking cool baths with oatmeal, and using a lot of hydrocortisone creams. Good luck! Always remember that there is someone else out there going through it too.
530191 tn?1214166411 I have had cortisone shots and know that they are only temporary, if they work at all. I take antihistamines at night so I can sleep, but I try to take the lowest dosage possible and I experiment with going off of them on weekends (when I don't have work the next morning) so that I don't become dependent on them.
97615 tn?1212682189 They are emotionally and temperature related and do not go away as easily as other times. The bumps are raised up and I can tell a good 5-10 minutes before I get them. It can take 10 minutes or several hours for them to go away. I always get them everywhere and over the years they are getting worse. This weekend I vommited several times with a bad episode, and even today I have had them about 50% of the day. I was surprised to hear that so many other people have the same thing as I do.
