  • U should really ask ur doctor which ones you can take cause it depends on each person on which one they can take.... I am an RN and in are office they usually tell them to take tylonal cold unless we give them a proscription for meds.......

  • i wouldnt. use a saline nose spray, drink hot tea, take a warm steamy shower and go take a nap. thats all you really need. a cold is not that big of a deal and if you think it is just wait until you are in labor. hah! thats much more uncomfortable than a common cold

  • My doctor told me when i was pregnant, to take Mucinex DM, but you should call your doctor and ask whats right for you
