What is the safety of taking medicines during pregnancy?
I am particularly curious about allergy medicine, topical steroids and OTC pain reliever.

TIA

I have always preferred not to take medication during pregnancy..not even a tylenol. However I realize that is not always possible. Each individual drug will be different..for instance aspirin is not safe but most OB's will say that tylenol is.
Ask your mid wife about the specific drugs you need to take, even OTC drugs..
