Can you take claritin (loratadine) for allergies, if you are exclusively breastfeeding?

Yes: This drug is safe with nursing.
FYI...many drugs are not tested as such for breast milk concentration...but all evidence suggests a good safety profile in babies even as you as 3-6 months.
So during nursing if you need to take it, it should be alright.
This is what I recommend in practice.
