its me again! I just came down with a really bad cold w/ sneezing, runny nose, low fever-everything! I'm so miserable but I don't know what medicine I can take..anyone else know? thanks-hope everyone is doing great!
You could go to your family doctor and have them give you something if its really bad they will probably contact your ob/gyn before perscribing anything to make sure its ok but...now a days they can give you meds that won't affect your baby!
My doctor says to take Tylenol, Robitussin (plain, no initials), Sudafed, and over-the-counter cough drops. Watch the fever carefully and proactively take Tylenol if necessary. That poses the most danger to the baby.
I agree with the last poster, ask your doc, as I got the flu during my first trimester and was not aloud to take anything accept tylenol and cough drops. I don't know about now, I don't need to ask, but I think it depends on how far along you are. The first trimester is most critical cause that is where all the development of your baby is. good luck.
