  • The box should have that info on it. And, if not, call any Walgreen's 24 hour pharmacy and the pharmacist can tell you (or your friend).

  • Ya she looked there and it says consult your physician and I told her to call and talk with the nurse on with labor and delivery and she said that was one product she had no idea about! So now she is calling the pharmacist like you advised. I never even thought about telling her to do that! LOL Thanks so much!

  • She just got off the phone with him and he said that the Walgreens Theraflu will not hurt the baby cause it has low enough meds in it!! So thanks again so much for all the replies!!
