In brief: Depends on symptoms
Depends on what problem your wife uses allergy medicine for. I'd try to avoid any medicine in the first 12 weeks if possible.
Neti pot for nasal rinses works a like a champ in patients with allergic rhinitis. Rhinocort is listed category b. It is a nasal spray and works great in people with the above problem. Claritin/zyrtec and Benadryl (diphenhydramine) are otherwise safe to take as well.
