  • What kind of sick? You can use regular sudafed for sinus, and cough drops are fine. Also regular saline nasal spray but nothing more. You can take tylonol if you have a fever, but I think that's all that's allowed. Maybe you could call the nurse at your dr office tomorrow for advice? that way she could tell you for your specific pregnancy.

  • You can have Sudafed, Zyrtec, Robitussin, and any cough drop. That's about it. Mucinex can be dangerous in the first trimester, so don't take that at all. You can also use saline nasal spray (not a decongestant spray, just straight saline) to help clear your nose.
