5574172 tn?1376700381 Thank you now that you said that I remember my piece of paper with safe medications said benedryl if your having insomnia, & since its for those symptoms I'm sure it can't hurt to try it.
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 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?
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 So go see ur doctor and he will help u with pregnancy safe meds, its more safe to take meds and kill all those germs than suffer for couple weeks.
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 f tn I know Benedryl is safe. That can help with an itchy throat. There's a list you can google "safe cold medications during pregnancy" too. But I was nervous taking anything other than Benedryl when I got sick. One thing that helped me soooo much was warm water with fresh lemon juice and honey. I drank that before bed and it was a lifesaver!
Avatar f tn For instance, I personally have never been told that anything other than Benadryl is ok during pregnancy besides REGULAR tylenol, BUT that may not be the case for your specific dr. You need to check with them first and see what they say is ok. The internet is a dangerous place to be asking, because we don't know you, your medical history, or history of your pregnancy, and we are NOT drs.
Avatar f tn If you are pregnant and do get a cold, do not take any over-the-counter cold or cough medications without checking with your ob/gyn or practitioner. Most antihistamines, decongestants and cough medicines should not be taken during pregnancy unless instructed to do so by the practitioner. They are usually not tested in pregnant women and may have dangerous side effects for the baby. In most cases, it is fine to take Tylenol (acetaminophen) for minor aches and pains.
Avatar f tn I had my 28 week appointment today and my doctor said at my 30 week appointment she wants me to get the whooping cough vaccine to protect baby and me. I want to keep my baby safe, but am weary of giving vacinnes that are relatively new (from what I've read they just started recommending this vaccine in pregnancy around 2011 I believe). What are your thoughts? Has anyone done this during a previous pregnancy and if so what was the outcome? Thanks for any input.
Avatar f tn The ginger ale would be fine. I have been drinking ginger ale during my entire pregnancy because the ginger part helps calm my stomach. When it comes to prenatals, the 1st trimester is SO important so start those right away! For headaches, you can take regular tylenol. Each doctor is going to possibly have slightly different opinions based on how conservative they are. There are lists available online for safe OTC meds.
Avatar f tn I have a sore throat, and stuffy nose with a slight cough. What over the counter medications can I take for this?
666089 tn?1260520261 You could always go to a health food store and they will be able to direct you as to what is safe during pregnancy and give you natural remedies as well. Oh, and you will not hurt the baby by coughing. He/she is tucked away in a very safe place. =) Hope you feel better soon!!!
1285651 tn?1319642429 this is a list of medications that are safe to take while pregnant, just erase the spaces http://women.webmd .com/pharmacist-drugs-medication-9 /pregnancy-medicine but especially since your high risk i would call your ob and see what they suggest.
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 Are halls cough drops safe to chew during pregnancy. I woke up with a bad cough and one of the doctor assistant said it was okay!
Avatar f tn Panadol (paracetamol) and adhd can't be caused by taking medication.
Avatar n tn Tylenol or cough drops with no menthol :(
Avatar f tn I have been told that plain Sudafed (Phenylephrine) is safe to take during pregnancy, but I have been trying to research online different medications that are safe to take during pregnancy and it says that Sudafed shouldn't be taken, or should not be taken until the last 3 months of pregnancy. I have taken in 3 times so far during the last 2 weeks to try to calm my nasal congestion, but now I am afraid that I am just doing damage to the baby.
Avatar f tn My son brought home a nasty cough and about after a week i finally contracted it. What medicines, if any, are safe to take during pregnancy? Or any home remedies that truely work. Im 20 weeks pregnant and my stomach hurts from all this coughing.
