A member asked:

I am pregnant and took my otc zyrtec this morning. now my nose is stopped up, is it safe to go ahead and take a dose of benadryl (diphenhydramine) @ 8p?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Yes but: Neither Zyrtec nor Benadryl (diphenhydramine) are expected to help for a stopped up nose. Runny nose, yes. There are other options that are also relatively safe to take during pregnancy. Nasal saline is a non-medicine option that has helped many.
