I can't go to the doctor right now because I'm waiting to get insurance but I'm really sick?

  • lots of fluids and rest and you can take tylenol for your aches and pain. you can take vitamin c.

  • i would say call a doctors office and just tell them you have a cold, your pregnant and you need to know what over the counter medications are safe to take. My doctor gave me a list with all the different medications i can take for different symptoms. I dont have it in front of me or i would tell you. But if you just ask that they might not require an appointment. other wise go to a pharmacy like walmarts, and ask the pharmacist what is safe. they will tell you.
