Hi and thanks for your query,
Iterax is a drug used mainly for allergies as well as itches. However, during pregnancy, drugs need to be taken with much caution including Iterax.
Determining the exact cause of the itches is worth while so we know exactly for what the drug is taken. This is critically important for there might exist simpler drugs with less side effects.
I suggest you visit your gynecologist for a proper clinical evaluation and prescription of an appropriate drug. Iterax should generally be avoided during pregnancy especially during the first three months. I suggest you meet your gynecologist.
Thanks and best regards,
Luchuo, MD.
