    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    Claritin is on the safe med list. Mucinex you will need to discuss with your OB provider. As I didn't find a whole lot of useful information on it other than its a pregnancy class C and safe use has not been established in pregnant women (I work at a medical center and that is what the clinical pharmacology online said). If you are having problems with allergies or illness it would also be good to discuss that with your provider as well. Best wishes.
