I'm 19wks pregnant & I have bad allergies, sneezing, running nose & a itchy throat. I was told Benadryl was bad to take but on medhelp website it says it's ok to take! My question is Can I take it?

According to my Dr and my hospital website it is safe to take AFTER 12 weeks pregnant, but always always call and consult your Dr before taking any over the counter medicine
