  • your doctor should have provided you with a list, if you call the office the receptionist can read you the list

    every doctor is different

    mine allowed a lot more medications than that

  • I am there now except I am just congested! I have been taking Sudafed ( ask pharmacist ) for it- not the same as on shelf. My ob also said Benadryl is safe too...

    Check out the website www.safefestus.com It shows what is safe to take but call your ob to confirm.

  • Sudafed, Benadryl and Tylenol. I was pregnant during flu season and worked in a daycare. These, upon my OB's recommendation, are the meds that I was able to take.
