  • there is, but it's been so long, I can't remember what. Your safest bet is to call your dr. and ask.

  • Your doctor has a list of medications that is safe to take while pregnant. If you get a fever of 102 make sure to take some Tylenol.

  • honey you need to call your doctor of any kind of medicine that you can take. i know that they always tell me tylenol and lots of water. lol that seems to be the remedy for everything. even when i was having irritable contractions. but depending on what kind of medicines you are allergic to and if you are like me a high risk pregnancy. but either way call your doctor and see what they say is best for you to take.
