I'm about 8 weeks and coming down with a cold. Sore throat and slight congestion. Is there anything I can safely take to make this go away? I was going to go out and buy Vitamin C tablets...? Any natural remedies?

I just got over a really bad cold and I am almost 10 weeks. I was told by the doc that I could take tylenol every two hours, robitussin, and any cough drogs. My cold lasted about two weeks and it was bad, I hope you don't have what I had.

thanks gals! I'm nauseous today too, along with being sick, and threw up a couple times already this morning before 10 and I'm at work. I am SO tempted to go home at lunch...and I think I will.

In my list of approved meds my doc gave me, it lists that for coughs it is safe to take "Plain Robitussin as directed" and for colds it says: No meds prior to 13 weeks, after 13 weeks Chlor-Trimeton as directed, Extra Str Tylenol 2 pills every 4-6 hrs, & Saline Nasal Spray. For a sore throat it says to increase fluids, and for sinus drainage use a humidifier. HTH. AS with anything, always check with your doctor before taking anything. Hope you feel better soon!

sudafed and robitussin -cough I think are the only ones meds you can take - and tylenol.It really sucks to be sick and pregnant - you can also take zicam, which is basically Zinc.
