Taking Levosiz M for urticaria. Possibility of getting pregnant by continuing drug?

Hi Dr.
I have been taking Levosiz M 10 mg for the past 3 years due to having chronic urticaria. Wanted to know what are the possibilities of me getting pregnant if I continue with this drug? Can I continue to take this drug after I am pregnant? Or do I have to stop having this drug if I wish to get pregnant.
Please suggest.

hello dear
thanks for your query at HCM
your taking levosiz m that contain levocetrizine and montelukast.
according to USFDA category effect of drugs on pregnancy both drugs belong to category B
category B means: May be acceptable Either animal studies show no risk but human studies not available or animal showed minor risks and human studies were done and showed no risk.
according to this drugs can be taken as no role in effect on pregnancy was proved

My doctor said I might have PCOD and I am overweight but eating better and exercising. My husband and I really want to have a child, and I ve read that it is better to stop taking birth control, which I am on, after the last placebo pill. I m also on Metformin. After stopping birth control, continuing Metformin, and continuing to exercise, is there anything else I should be doing to try to get myself pregnant? We tried for over a year without any luck, and I d like to give it the best shot possible this time.

Hello, I had a temp of 103 and felt severe muscle pains & exhaustion - a couple of days later my tonsils were infected tongue went black and then I started getting an extremely sore throat. Went to doctors and was given 1 weeks course antibiotics - didn t work so tried different kind and they didn t work so tried third kind - and still not working. This took about three weeks and in that time the lining of my throat ulcerated and I was in agony. I felt like a burns victim but on the inside. The pain was so severe I couldn t sleep and ended up taking co-dydramol for the pain( hardly touched it) and sleeping tablets. In all it took 7 weeks and 5 days before I wasn t in pain. My saliva has become granular and my mouth very dry. It has been over 4 months now and I am still not completely better. My Dr would not swab my throat despite me asking. Was also prescribed meds for GERD but these made no difference. Now suffering from post nasal drip. Desperate for advice. 41 yr old woman, taking thyroxine and paroxetine. Avr height and weight.
