cold medicine?

Is there any cold medicine that is safe for us? I had a bad running nose, sore throat and a lot of pressure in my head.

Honestly there isn't a whole lot you can take. For tonight you could suck on some halls menthol cough drops that are safe and take regular tylenol but in regards to cold medicine I would contact your doc/ob first thing in morn so they can give you the accurate medicine as none of us our docs:) Good luck hope you feel better soon.

I was told Tylenol cold was ok...as well as afrin and a couple of allergy medicines (not all allergy medicines though)...every pregnancy is different though and every Dr is different as to what they prefer so I would definitely call.

I too have a cold and was told I could take benadryl, robitussin dm, sudafed, tylenol cold,  and afrin. Hope you feel better. Ribitussin is the only thing that actually worked for me.
