allergy medicine?!

Do any of you lady's take zyrtec for allergies? I don't like taking anything period but my allergies are sever. I claritan with my son but I feel like zyrtec works better. I was told its just as safe but figured I'd see what you lady's take.

I've only heard of Claritin and regular Benadryl being safe but I would ask your doctor because some meds you need to be within a certain trimester to you use them.

Claritin is a type b pregnancy medication, it's one of the few that seems to be safe to take while preggo
My doctor told me not to take Zyrtec
