Would it be possible that a pregnant woman take benadryl/antihistamine to treat an allergic reaction or help allergy induced asthma?
Yes & No: Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is considered safe in pregnancy & may be used to treat allergic conditions like allergic rhinitis or hives. Antihistamines like Benadryl are not effective for itching not associated with a rash. This can be due to pregnancy-related liver problems. Talk to your OB about that. Benadryl is also not effective for asthma. There are safe asthma drugs to use while pregnant. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is it safe to take equate allergy formula while pregnant? It has diphenhydramine hydrochloride caplets 25mg
Risk?: There is no safety data on pregnancy but I am unaware of any reported fetal issues associated with its use. Thus whether you should take the risk would depend on the stage of pregnancy (less in the last 3 months) and the risk/benefit ratio of other options. You need to discuss with your OB doc re. The pros and cons. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I always eat papaya, but I just had some now and my throat itches but I am 6 weeks pregnant could this be allergy? If so it's Benadryl (diphenhydramine) safe?
Four: Diphenhydramine (generic of benadryl) 25 mg, 1 tab, every 4 hours, is the usual starting dose. If you are not controlled and not sedated you can increase to 2 tabs every 4 hours. A better alternative is Cetirizine 10 mg, 1 tab, once day. Studies show Cetirizine 10 mg, once a day is therapeutically equivalent to Diphenhydramine 25 mg, 3-4x/day with much less, if any, sedation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
8 mnths pregnant with bad allergies is it ok if I take bendryl ? If so hw often witg seasional allergies I need relief
Yes but better meds: Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is safe but sedating and has to be taken every 4-6 hours. Cetirizine (generic zyrtec) is safe in pregnancy, especially at 8 months, causes minimal, if any sedation and only has to be taken once a day. Usual dose of 10 mg at bedtime is as effective as Benadryl (diphenhydramine) 25 mg, 3-4 times per day. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can you take 5 mg of Vicodin and 25 mg of Benadryl together? I weigh 113 pounds and I'm a female. I have an ovarian cyst and I hardly ever take pain medications so I'm a little afraid and my allergies are killing me.
I'm 7 months pregnant and have chronic urticaria and angieodema. I used to take at lease 500mg of benadryl (diphenhydramine). What is the max limit for a pregnant woman?
50 mg?: Did you mean 50 mg of benadryl (diphenhydramine)? I have never heard of 500 mg ever being used to treat any condition. 50 mg of Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is considered the usual adult maximum dose and many pregnant women have used this dosing. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is a category b pregnancy drug which means it has a low likelihood of harming the fetus, but randomized controlled studies have not been performed. ...Read more
Is it safe for a pregnant woman in her 3rd trimester to take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) while also taking Metronidozale? As well as the occasional Zofran?
I'm curious what could happen if you take 11 Aleve and 4 Benadryl (diphenhydramine) to treat allergies?
Either, though...: Zyrtec is approved for animal allergy. Claritin and Allegra approved for seasonal (pollen) allergy, not pets, though certainly they'd work to some degree as well. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) will work; and though a good proportion will get groggy or sleepy, you may be a person who can tolerate it, and could be more effective than Zyrtec. I wouldn't drive on Benadryl (diphenhydramine) though - it slows reaction times. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
