you can use all of those while nursing. My OB (VERY bf friendly) put me on flonase, which is essentially the same as nasonex (which is designed to work topically on your sinuses, it barely gets into your blood stream), and my allergist put me on Allegra, which I believe is the preferred for breastfeeding. There is some controversy over whether or not antihistamines (allegra) cause a decrease in breast milk, but I'm pretty sure Dr. Hale is of the opinion that they probably don't, I either read it in his stuff or on Kellymom.com. I did a lot of researching because I had near constant sinus infections last year.
