Does Allergex affect the baby during pregnancy?

Good day I am currently 7 weeks and 3 days pregnant and well basically i have had flu for over a week. My home doctor just recommended that i stick to Sterimar sea water solution nasal spray to keep the nose clear. But its only fixing it temporarily. So i phoned the nursing staff at the hospital and they suggested that I take 1 allergex tablet and try to get in some rest. I just want to know if taking the allergex did not and will not in anyway harm my baby. Thank you in advance. Lariska

Hello,

Allergex is an antihistamine and is generally given to treat symptoms that may be related to allergies. Generally, this drug is safe to use during pregnancy and because you have already consulted a medical professional who has recommended it to you, I would say you are safe to use it as already advised.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Antoneta Zotaj, General & Family Physician
