I'm 10w pregnant & I've allergy that keeps getting worse sneezing itching ears & throat congestion & the PA told me i can take allegra (fexofenadine) ! Is it safe?

I'm 10w pregnant & I've allergy that keeps getting worse sneezing itching ears & throat congestion & the PA told me i can take allegra (fexofenadine) ! Is it safe?

No Allegra (fexofenadine): Claritin (loratadine) and Zyrtec (cetirizine) are pregnancy category B medications which means that animal reproduction studies have failed to demonstrate a risk to the fetus. I frequently use these medications with my pregnant patients. Allegra (fexofenadine) is category C so I would avoid this medication and stick with the ones listed above. If concerned, talk to OB/GYN about specific medications. ...Read more

Prevacid (lansoprazole) solutabs making gas worse in infant, help?

Prevacid (lansoprazole) solutabs making gas worse in infant, help?

Infant colic: Prevacid (lansoprazole) is not known to cause gas. It is used to reduce acid and thus treat reflux to prevent the esophagus from getting inflamed. It is normally given to children more than 1 years old but is commonly used for newborns. If you are right, i would suggest simply using half the dose for a day or so and see if the "gas" is gone. If not, stay on the Prevacid (lansoprazole) and change your infant's diet. ...Read more

? codeine withdrawal: The amount of codeine in this analgesic is relatively low, but the use of any opiate for long enough can result in physical dependency and some withdrawal. Insomnia is common with withdrawal, but I would expect the other symptoms - muscle aches and cramps, stomach cramps, diarrhea, nausea and others. It is likely to only last a few more days, but you could take an OTC med (Unisom etc) to help. ...Read more
