Talk to your doctor about using Sudafed during the first 3 months of pregnancy
. If your doctor says not to use Sudafed during
the first 3 months, you may use diphenhydramine (die-fen-HI-dra-meen), like Benadryl. Take 1 to 2 Benadryl tablets (25mg to 50mg), every 6 hours as needed. Use Benadryl with caution. It may make you drowsy.
For a sore throat, gargle with warm salt water or mouthwash. Suck on cough drops or throat lozenges.
