I : I can understand your fear, however the best thing for you and your baby is for you to relax and move on from here. The likelihood that any damage was done to your baby is very slim. Claritin is considered a pregnancy category b drug; this means that animal studies have not shown any risk to a fetus, therefore doctors consider drugs in this category to be considered safe and prescribe them all the time. Mucinex is considered a class c drug which means that animal studies have shown adverse effect on the fetus, however these are usually an issue when a large amount of the drug is used or the drug is used over an extended period of time. Regardless, many doctors prescribe drugs in this category because the benefits from use outweigh any potential risk to the fetus. Also keep in mind that these studies are usually in fetus that are very early (first trimester). At 5 months all your baby's major organs are developed and should not be affected by a class c drug. Lastly, i used category c drugs while pregnant as well as given them to my patients, and I have not seen one bad outcome from it. Your baby will be just fine. If you ever want to know which medications you can take don't hesitate to contact your doctor. Best of luck with your pregnancy. ...Read more

Category C drugs: This falls into category c. This is a pregnancy related scale listing meds form class a-x from very safe to dangerous/damaging. Category c includes meds that have no known negative effect on human fetal development from available studies but those studies are not extensive enough to move it to a safer category. ...Read more
