Is Claritin ok?

Hey guys, how are you? I'm feeling like mother nature is killing me! I have cedar fever and my face hurts!

I hate taking any medicines, and rarely take Tylenol. I desperately want to take Claritin or any allergy medicine, but I think I read it can dry up cm. I wonder if that's accurate?

I've been snorting caloidal silver, but it's not helping. Anyway, hope everyone is okay, and have a great night.

Hi Serrine. Unfortunately strong anti-histamines as a whole should be avoided whilst trying to get pregnant. However, the common “non-drowsy” hay fever anti-histamines are usually OK to take whilst going through treatment, but need to be stopped when pregnant. There is an ointment called “Hay Max” which you can get from “Holland & Barrett” which is completely organic and harmless. It is just a cream that you put up your nostrils to catch pollen etc and I believe it works well. They do make other products too which might be beneficial for you. I’m sure your GP will reassure you further. Take care and hope you soon feel better. Diane
