My hayfever has really kicked up in the last two days. I go tomorrow to the doctor so I'll be asking him what medicine I can take. I really need something...I am miserable!

Any of you ladies taking anything for allergy relief?

I was given permission to take Allegra when I was pregnant with Allison, so I took it this time too.

I was told that I could take Claritin or Allegra. Make sure it is NOT the decongestant type as those are not approved.

Most allergy meds are ok so long as they arent the -D type. I've taken claritan as needed.

What about Loratadine which is the Antihistamine portion? I don't need the D part I need the Antihistamine portion. Itchy eyes, throat and runny nose and sneezing.
