  • The 'head-on' products work really good, if you can get past the annoying commercials though. I would suggest you check with a pharmacy, they can give you suggestions of something that would be safe for the baby and help you. A lot of things would depend on how far along you are, like for example something that you should avoid in the first few months would be not so bad closer to the end of the nine months because it might have been harmful during a certain development. If that makes any sense.

    Good luck and I hope you feel better.

  • your not supposed to take anything for pain or cold other then robatussin DM and tylenol products... i've had 6 doctors all say those are the safest things to take... dont take anything like asprin, aleve, exceterin (sp?) robatussin Dm severe cold works the best for me...
