  • When i had a cold i'd take Tylenol allergy and cold or benadryl. You can take chloraseptic lozenges and use chloraseptic spray for your throat. Hope it gets better.

  • My OB said i could take anything made by tylenol. I guess they are the only company researching thier products for use on pregnant women. he even told me i could take tylenol pm, but not to abuse it. But I am very healthy, so it may be different for you, allthough he gave me a list won my first appt with everything on it that I could take, so I assume he gave it to everyone who was a patient, untill he found out something about that could have an adverse effect.

  • Nothing works. I remember when I was pregnant I was miserable. My dr wouldn't even see me. I was sick for over a month and a half. Finally I went to the ER. He gave me something and about a week later it was gone :) I don't remember what it was but that worked.

  • My OB always said I would take any tylenol product and sudafed. Just give your dr office a call and they will tell you what you can take.
