Hi Doc
i would really like you to give me some advice about pregnancy and some allergy medication. i have this allergy and it itches all over the body. my doctor gave me zaditen to help with this. off course the medication really helps, but i have recently found out that its not good during pregnancy. another doctor recommended avil and i tried it but its not helping me much with the allergy. now i think i might be pregnant. what do i do.

The Zaditen is, as you have mentioned, not advised during pregnacy. Advil does not contain ingredients that will help for your symptoms, and should furthermore not be used. My suggestion: See a doctor to confirm your pregnancy and only then let him/her decide on a suitable treatment for your alllergy. Best of luck!
