Re: I've got a cold:(
Here's a list I found of safe OTC drugs that we can take while pregnant...
Indigestion, gas, upset stomach: Antacids for acid indigestion or heartburn (Tums, Rolaids, Mylanta, Maalox), Simethicone for gas pains (Gas-X, Mylicon, Phazyme)
Cough or cold: Guaifenesin plus dextromethorphan (Robitussin DM, Benylin Expectorant, Vicks Cough Syrup), Cough drops, Vick's VapoRub
Note that some cold remedies contain alcohol so you may want to use them sparingly if at all. You may also want to avoid products that contain the decongestant pseudoephedrine which can affect blood flow to the placenta.
Pain relief, headache, or fever: Acetaminophen (Tylenol, Anacin-3)
Allergy relief: Chlorpheniramine antihistamine alone (Chlor-Trimeton allergy tablets)
Be careful not to use decongestant sprays more often than is recommended on the packaging, as they can damage nasal passages if used too frequently.
Constipation, diarrhea, and hemorrhoids: Bulking products can be used regularly (Metamucil, Citrucel), Laxatives and stool softeners (Colace, Dulcolax, milk of magnesia), Hemorrhoid creams (Tucks, Preparation H, or Anusol), Antidiarrhea medicine can be used occasionally (Kaopectate, Donnagel)
Insomnia: Diphenhydramine (Benadryl, Nytol, Sominex-2), Doxylamine succinate (Unisom Nighttime Sleep-Aid)
First-aid preparations: Polysporin, Cortaid, Lanacort
