  • Regular sudafed is safe...but I would call my ob that late in the pregnancy just to make sure. That's the only thing they told me I could have.
    I'm sorry :( Hope you feel better!

  • I would call my doctor to make sure, but mine prescribed me Sudafed (psuedoephedrine) when I was 22 weeks pregnant for a nasty cold. Also Tylenol nighttime to help me sleep, and benedryl. None of this should hurt the baby, but I would double check just to make sure. Remember, if you can't breath, neither can baby!

    I have an OB appointment today though so I'm going to tell her to fix me. LOL
