Is there any medicine I can take while pregnant?

I have stuffed nose, aches in both ears, scratched throat. No coughing, sneezing, or fever. I do feel very tired so I have been resting. I am 30 weeks pregnant, anything safe I can do or take to help relieve these symptoms?

  • My doctor said regular Sudafed but I would definitely call and ask your OBGYN before you take anything.

  • any typ of tylenol product is ok. Mine recommended tylenol cold and sinus with cold blast. It has a day and night formula, but still call your doctor first

  • Tylenol is always okay for minor pain relief. If you have any serious or lasting pain in your abdomen, call your doctor right away! You should always ask your doctor before you take anything, and let them know if you've been taking Tylenol or have switched your prenatal vitamins.

  • I would see the doctor - I think it sounds like you might have a sinus or ear infection.
