Hey all. Im feeling so sick. Everything hurts. Finally I broke down and drank 2 dayquil. If i am pregnant, could this harm the baby?

Re: DayQuil

I looked on the safe fetus website where they list medications and the ingrediants are ok, the pain reliever in it paracetamol is fine and safe in pregnancy and the decongestant wont harm the baby if it isnt used all the time!
Even if it wasnt safe theres a very tiny chance it will harm the baby anyway as u only used it once

Re: DayQuil

Yes Dayquil and Nyqui are not good to take if you are pregnant but like tallgirl said if won't hurt just this one time. My doc recommended Sudafed and that worked great for me. Good luck and hope you feel better

Re: DayQuil

Thanks ladies. The Dayquil appears to be doing its job because I dont feel so miserable anymore. AF is due today. Hopefully she wont make an appearance. Wish me luck!!
