Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
The drug you mentioned contains the active ingredient cetirizin. This drug is an antihistamine class. Working by inhibiting the action of histamine causes allergic reactions, such as allergic rhinitis. In allergic rhinitis sneezing will occur, especially every morning the nose runny. This medicine can be given for pregnant women. Included in category B for pregnant women. Where in animal experiments there are no side effects on the fetus. However, even so there has been no direct research on humans. For that, still consult this with your obstetrician.
You should use a mask, cold clothes and scarf every morning until before noon. Clean every dust in your room. Usually dust sticks to the fan, top of the cupboard, the headboard and under the bed.
Thus hopefully useful.
