Nasal Congestion
I am 17wks pregnant and am suffering something terrible with a constant blocked nose. I have resorted to iliadin(For Adults)which is the only thing that opens my nose so I am able to get some sleep.

I have been on the web and have found some website which say that iliadin is not safe to take during pregnancy.

Please advise if this is infact true

This is the information on Iliadin and pregnancy.
'No adequate human data, no teratogenic effect has been reported in first trimester exposure, but frequent, chronic doses late in pregnancy causes uterine vessels' constriction with subsequent fetal hypoxia, bradycardia and non reactive NST.
Recommended therapeutic doses has no risk to the fetus.'
