  • Any cold medicine that does not contain Ibuprofin, Aspirin, or Naxproxen. So Tylenol Cold, Robitussin, Sudafed, those are safe.

  • I don't take meds while pregnant, unless I get a severe migraine then I succumb to Tylenol.

    traditional medicinals makes a tea called "throat coat" and I used it when my throat started bothering me, and I had a cough, and I loved it. I love all the cold care teas. :)

  • I can't remember how far along I was, but when I was pregnant I got bronchitis (sp?) and my ob called in Robitussin with codeine!! Call your doctor & ask what is safe, it will make you feel better to hear it from them .
    Hope you feel better!
