  • I'm not sure what meds are ok for pregnant women (it has been 5 yrs since I was last pregnant). I would suggest you talk to your doctor or a pharmacist and see what meds are ok to use during pregnancy. One thing that makes me feel better when I have a sore throat is drinking hot tea with honey and lemon in it. You can also gargle with warm salt water (and spit it out when done). I hope you feel better soon! It sucks to be sick when pregnant!!

  • benadryl and tylenol at the lowest doses are the only things safe during pregnancy...

  • You can take any sudafed product if you think it is allergy. Tylenol or benadryl. Hot cider or tea helped to sooth my throat and opened my sinuses too.
