THIS MEDICATION MAY CAUSE HARM TO YOUR BABY: Chlorpheniramine is considered an antihistamine of choice during pregnancy. There is limited safety information from human studies that have looked at the use of chlorpheniramine during pregnancy, but available studies indicate that there is probably not an increased risk of birth defects. Nursing infants exposed to chlorpheniramine are at risk of drowsiness or irritability; use of this medication while breastfeeding may or may not be recommended. This medication should be used with caution if administered in pregnant women or nursing mothers.
