Patient :I am 14.5 weeks pregnant. My OB Dr had told me I could take Benadryl for occassional trouble sleeping. I had a bottle of ZZZquil from before I was pregnant and saw it had the same active ingredient as benadryl, so I had been this medication periodically the past few weeks. I just noticed yesterday that the medicine contains 10% alcohol! I usually only took 1/2 a dose when I did take the medicine. But I am worried if taking this could have caused harm to my baby.
