What kind of cold medicine can you take when your pregnant

When you are pregnant, it can be hard to know what medications are safe to take and which are dangerous.
You can find it in the brand names Alavert, Claritin, Tavist ND,  and also in Triaminic Allerchews.
One of the most helpful medications for pregnant women with cough symptoms is Guaifenesin, which is an expectorant. For fever, muscle aches and pains and headaches associated with a cold during pregnancy, the only truly safe option is Acetaminophen.
For nasal congestion with a cold, women are perfectly fine to use saline nasal sprays or drops.
Women who are pregnant should always try to avoid taking any medications at all for the first twelve weeks of their pregnancies. A humidifier or even a hot shower can help to alleviate some cold symptoms for pregnant women without the use of any medications, as can hot or cold packs. Having a high FSH level can make it harder to become pregnant, but this doesn’t necessarily prevent pregnancy altogether. When your toddler isn’t feeling well, it is likely that they will develop nausea which can lead to vomiting.


The only real “doctor approved” option for treating headaches during pregnancy is Tylenol, or Acetaminophen. Turn off the lights, and spend some time lying in a dark, cool, quiet room to see if that can help your headache ease up. One of the most common ailments of people of any age is the common cold, but when you are pregnant, the common cold can really pack a big punch.
Another option for allergy medication while pregnant is Diphenhydramine, which is the active ingredient in Benadryl. Acetaminophen is sold under the brand name of Tylenol, and it is the most commonly doctor recommended pain reliever for women during pregnancy.
They are one of the most common pregnancy complaints.  Unfortunately, there are not many medications that pregnant women can safely take during their pregnancies.
If you do take Tylenol during your pregnancy, make sure to follow the instructions carefully and do not take too much.
Lay down and take a nap, or simply close your eyes and lay there for a while, and try to let your headache ease up.
Sometimes headaches can even be caused by lack of sleep, so try a nap to see if that is the cure.


If you are having recurring headaches at the same time every day, you might want to try eating something small and see if it helps your symptoms.
Dehydration is actually a very common cause of headaches in everyone, but especially pregnant women. If you ever have any questions about what you can take during your pregnancy, make sure to ask your doctor just to be on the safe side. Taking more than the recommended amount of Tylenol can cause liver damage, and in late pregnancy, liver damage in the baby as well. Always ask your doctor before taking any medication during pregnancy that you do not know is safe.
If you get a headache, drink a big glass of water and see if that helps your symptoms to improve.
