Cold and Clomid

Hello Ladies,

I am scheduled to start Clomid in 2 days!

I feel like I may be coming down with a cold :-(

I am taking a Multi Vitamin with High Folic Acid everyday.

Should I take some more Vitamin C and try to stop it while I can?

My Real question is......Can I take cold medicine while taking Clomid?  Can I take Clomid while I have a cold?

UGH

Thanks for any advice in advance!

When I took Clomid, I used Robitussin (the one without any letters) because it's supposed to help thin out your cervical mucous which prevents it from being hostile (too thick).  I started taking it the day after my last pill right up until I got a positive OPK.  I got pregnant on that cycle.  It was my only cycle so I don't know if the Clomid was going to work without it anyway but it definitely didn't hurt the process.

Hi Ladies,

Thanks a bunch for the advice. I only feel really yucky when I wake up!  But I will get some Robitussin (not letters) if it gets worse.
