  • its probably a better idea to call your OB. Different meds affect people differently. What a certain med worked well with person A might be bad thing for person B.

  • I agree with the others, call your doctor or ask your local pharmacist what would be ok to take during pregnancy.
    I hope you feel better soon!!

  • regular Sudafed that you get in the store aisle , not the one from behind the pharmacy counter. Your Dr should've given you a list of ok medicines to take, ask for one at your next appt. Thats the only one I can remember. I know there are more.
