What Can I Use For Nasal Congestion While Pregnant
Oxymetazoline, one of the most common active ingredients used in nasal spray decongestants (including Afrin), is generally considered safe to use during pregnancy. It hasn't been found to cause birth defects in the limited studies that have. I have been using Benadryl at night to help me sleep because my congestion is so bad! My OB gave me a list of safe medications during pregnancy and Claritin and Allegra were on there, but they don’t seem to help much. My allergies are killing me!

Try using saline nose drops or saline nasal spray three to four times a day to clear your nasal passages.
