you can take that while pregnant, it says on my list of medications, that's ok, and i'm 10 weeks along on monday.
They recommend avoiding as many meds as possible in the first trimester, but if you are in the second I wouldn't worry about meds on the safe list.
I just had a cold and I took things that was similar to Clariton D, then for the coughing I took a lot of cough drops. It took  longer to get better but that is what my doctor told me to take.
You should talk to your doctor about what medications are safe for you to take.
