I took a 25 mg of benadryl this afternoon bec. I started breaking out in hives. I'm 15 1/2 weeks pregnant. Is it ok to take this? I called the doctor but I can never speak to him, his assistant told me yes it's ok.

I was told from the start of my pregnancy by my doctor that Benadryl was ok.

yes, its ok......obviously if the a__sistnad told you its o.k. then its fine...otherwise they wouldn't say its o.k. I called my doc. today because I have been itching all over (I am 36w), and apparently itching in the end can be a side effect of the pregnancy...They told me to take benadryl or claritin...so I bought the generic of benadryl.

I had a skin rash when I was about 22 wks w/my DS and the docs prescribed benedryl.

It's the 2nd day and the benadryl must have wore off bec. I have hives again, bigger and more than yesterday. I paged the doctor and the doc on call said take 50 mg now and then 6 hrs later. I guess I'm so paranoid of taking anything.

I was told benadryl is completely safe. It is great for nausea and also for colds and congestion. Don't worry about taking it - it is ok!

My doctor told me that the small dose of benadryl was one of the few things I could take early in pregnancy.... should be safe!
