A member asked:

Stuffy nose and my ob said it might be due to allergies. i've never had allergies before. 25 weeks pregnant, and was told it was safe to take zyrtec. will it help for nasal congestion? is it drowsy?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Zyrtec (cetirizine): It is ok to take it in pregnacy yet it is not a decongestant. If you need that mucinex is a safe option to help break up mucus. Zyrtec isn't drowsy like benadryl (diphenhydramine)
