  • i wouldnt especially so early in pregnancy....

    try calling a pharmacy and telling them you are so far along in your pregnancy and ask what is available to take if anything...

  • My sister spoke to the pharmacist today for me when she went to get me some meds. I thought taking childrens cold medicine would be ok. But I had her double check and apparently Sudafed is the only thing I can take being pregnant for colds.

  • I was told that baby tylanol is ok to take, but i'm sure so early in your pregnancy. Usually if you call the local hospital you can speak to a provider and they can offer suggestions.

  • I was told not to take anything if you can help it less than 3 months into the pregnancy.
