I was taking Benadryl at night to sleep and lessen my anxiety attacks. I thought I may have been taking them for too long(months), so I quit taking them and now I'm waking up from dead sleep with full panic attacks. I'm wondering if it would be okay to start taking the benadryl again. I'm at 27 weeks today.
I dont know that I would take it. I was told I could during pregnancy but only for occasional use. I would discuss the problem you are having with your OB and maybe he/she can give you a better option. Good luck.
