Hi I've been prescribed some antihistamines by the hospital had extreme allergic reactions etc, but reading things on the internet has scared me out of taking them .. anyone else took antihistamines throughout their pregnancy?

I'm taking a nasal spray for my hayfever and GP has said it's fine

I take loratidine. It’s fine. Look at the NHS website or BNF. Avoid everything else.

BUMPS is also a fantastic resource:

Sorry when I said ‘avoid everything else’ I meant websites wise, not drug wise! There are lots of safe antihistamines!
