    Default Hayfever (me) and breastfeeding

    Hi all!!

    Help! for some awful reason my allergies have kicked in as of yesterday[- I am usually an August allergy girl. This stinks!!

    Can I take anything?? Do you trust any meds??

    I've been lucky in the health dept.so far and haven't had to deal with anything drug related for the past 11mths (dd is 11mths on Friday).

    Thanks!
    Lauren

    Here's where I go to check on meds and what they may do with bf:

    You could search for specifics there.

    I've taken zyrtec on occasion when my allergies have been really bad but for the most part I try to not take anything.

    Oh --- but a few weeks ago I swore up and down I was having allergies and it turned out to be a cold!!

    Best of luck to you.
