Pregnancy Cold Relief?
MOST HELPFUL POSTS
I was given a list of over the counter drugs that could be taken at my first OB/GYN appointment. Sudafed decongestant, robitussin cough medicine, and antihistamines were listed. Check with your doctor's nurse as to what they recommend for a cold.

Hi. Yes, i too had a horrible 3 week cold when pregnant. I called my doctors office and there are definitely several over the counter items you can take. I even remember them writing me a prescription for robitussin with codeine when my cough got so bad I could not lie down without coughing and it would almost sound like whooping cough. I think I only took it at bed time for a few nights and started getting better. I can't remember which over the counter items except Tylenol but there were some cold remedies that were ok, you just had to make sure they did not have a certain ingredient. Give them a call, hope you feel better.
