Thank you for your query.
Allercet contains cetirizine, which is reasonably safe in pregnancy.
particularly in the second trimester.
You should go along with the prescription provided to you.
Meanwhile, do continue taking antenatal supplements as prescribed, and take regular antenatal care.
Take care.
