175662_tn?1282217256 My Doctor gave me a safe meds list. For Cough: Plain Robitussin, Halls Cough Drops. For Runny Nose & Cold: Benadryl, Cholor-Trimeton, Sinutab, Sudafed, Claritan, Claritan-D, Tylenol Cold & Sinus. For Sore Throat: Sucrets, Choloraseptic Throat Spray. I would double check meds with your Doctor. This is the list my OBGYN gave me. Just Wondering....Wasn't it you that I read in a past post that you were trying to quit smoking?? If so, How's that going?
Avatar_f_tn So is Mucinex, which will help drain your sinuses! If you type in medicines safe during pregnancy into Google, you will get a number of sites that give you listings of safe meds. You want things that are in Category B... HTH!!
Avatar_f_tn Call your doctor and ask, just to be on safe side or Tylenol always is safe to take during pregnancy.
Avatar_f_tn For those of you who are unsure about what medication is safe, maybe this list my doctor gave me comes in handy for you... *** NO ADVIL, MOTRIN, IBUPROFEN, ASPIRIN OR ALEVE *** HEADACHES OR COLDS: All Tylenol products except extended release. ALLERGIES OR COLDS: Ocean nose spray, benadryl, sudafed, actifed, claritin, flonase. SORE THROAT OR COUGH: Plain robitussin, cepacol spray, all lozenges, all cough drops, warm salt water gargles, hot tea with honey & lemon.
Avatar_f_tn Hey ladies, is taking Tylenol cold medicine good to take during pregnancy. I have recently come down with a cold and I was just wondering what are some safe medicines to take. Since it's over the weekend and I can't contact my doctor...
Avatar_f_tn Is there any safe medications I can take for a cold. I have stuffy nose, itchy eyes, and slight headache. Anything to relief my symptoms?
613536_tn?1294242047 Anybody remember that list that was posted about safe medications? If you happen to know of a good website or know where the post is, could you please repost it or let me know - Thanks!!
Avatar_n_tn Afterall, so many other things are restricted during pregnancy, including certain medications and foods, why would be a flu shot be okay? But pregnant women are considered to be a high risk group and it is recommended that they get a flu shot if they will be past their first trimester (>14 weeks of gestation) during flu season, which is usually begins around November or December and continues through March and April in the United States.
Avatar_f_tn im worried if I've made a mistake. Any of your docs okay'd this med during your pregnancy? Im 21 weeks BTW. Pleeeeeeease help ! Any info is welcome!! Thanks in advance!
Avatar_n_tn Cough drops are fine ive had to take them myself due to problems breathing and cousing me to cough alot
Avatar_f_tn I would take showers and breathe the steam it helped me.
Avatar_n_tn and very quickly. For the most part antibiotics are safe to take during pregnancy, but this is not something that should be advised on line. Her Dr. is the only person that can safely answer. Good luck!
Avatar_n_tn If you were my patient, I would advise you that most antibiotics are safe to take during pregnancy. Cough syrup is usually safe too, although you want to avoid those with alcohol. You were so very early that there is a good possibility that the baby had not even implanted in the uterus yet, at the time you took the medications--if so, the baby would not have even been exposed, so no harm done. Good luck!
Avatar_n_tn Thanks for using the forum. The medications you can take during pregnancy are limited. I always recommend speaking with your doctor before taking any medications while pregnant. Your OB's office should be able to provide you with a list of common over the counter medications that are safe to take while pregnant. Additionally, you could try to put a humidifier in your room when you sleep. The moistened air can help with a cough.
Avatar_n_tn I have for the last year I have acquired a bad cough during my monthly. The last two periods though have been really rough and I just clued in that on the 2nd when I got my last one I got cough, fever, sore muscles and now on the 28th I have come down with the same thing. I am sitting here thinking that I might have swine flu but realized I felt this same way at the beginning of the month. This however is interfering with my work because I can't go in feeling the way I do.
Avatar_n_tn I always tell my asthma patients to USE their medications! All of the asthma medications are safe, and it is very important to get good oxygen to the baby! If you were my patient, I would have you come in for a peak flow study. I would encourage you to use your albuterol up to four times per day as needed, and I would consider starting an inhaled steroid for you.
363110_tn?1340924019 If there is something out there that helps get a woman through this and it causes little to no effect on the fetus then I say our goverment need s to legalize it. I took several medications during my pregnancy that were little known on how it would react with the long term condition of the baby but they gave them anyway because it was life or death. I have done alot of research on this and no one is able to give solid proof that it does hurt the baby.
Avatar_f_tn Dear nicole_g: I see you are taking infliximab (Remicade) for ulcerative colitis. One of main adverse effects of infliximab is decreasing your ability to fight viral, bacterial, and fungal infections.
Avatar_n_tn Hi, An OBG specialist of all the doctors on board would take special care in prescribing medication which are safe during pregnancy and cause no untoward effects on the baby. Virlix is cetrizine and you can take it for your symptoms. You should in addition, follow up with your doctor regularly and get all routine investigations done as and when required. Let us know about how you are doing and if you have any other doubts. Hope this helps. Regards.
Avatar_n_tn is it normal to get a negative pregnancy test 24 hours after embryo transfer?
898530_tn?1268622382 I was wondering, did you ever do a Home Pregnancy Test before the Blood Work? An if you did, how many days past IVF procedure date and did you get a positive? Hope to hear from you.
Avatar_n_tn So, it is also possible you could be receiving a positive result due to the Ovidrel shot, not due to pregnancy. Wishing you the best of luck.......I am rooting for you!!!
Avatar_n_tn I am 25 married only for a year and not really mentally prepared for a pregnancy, but my period is a week late and I just did a pregnancy test which can out negative.I have no other symptoms like nausea ets. but dono what to expect!! Its the holiday season and all labs are closed and I dont kwno how to handle this curosity!! Thanks for the usefull comments as they make me feel there are more people out there in my situation.
294666_tn?1253498923 Okay, so I feel like I am going to go CRAZY during this aweful 2ww. Why is it that life seems to be going by soo quick any other time, except for now of coarse?!? LOL! Maybe b/c this is my first real chance in 4 yrs to have a pos. hpt, but I feel I am definately getting antsy. I would ask if anyone has any symptoms, (I'm pushing it I know). I don't, but it would be great to have someone else to talk to.
Avatar_n_tn http://www.early-pregnancy-tests.com/clomid.html Also, I don't really have that obvious of pregnancy symptoms either--except for everytime i get pregnant, I get one or two very painful pimples on my face--that's been a sure sign for me! My fingers are crossed for you!!! Let me know what happens! Try to wait until the 29th or 30th to take another test.
10678677_tn?1413257866 so during this whole pregnancy i havnt taken any meds but kids meds for cold....well i just took only ONE tylenol extra strength bcuz my teeth r hurting then a half cap full of kids cold meds..is that okay??
1386655_tn?1452100656 I have a hard time believing this because if this cough actually went away finally, I would have to erect a statue of this dr in Central Park! So she says to me this is all safe to use during the first trimester and to go ahead and check with my dr if I feel better. If he doesn't agree, we can adjust this. So yesterday I called the RE - got the nurse gave her all the info and she said I'll check with the dr and call you back. So she does and says that the zrtec is fine.
