Q: What can I take for a cough when pregnant?

I'm 6 months pregnant and have the flu. It's all congestion and coughing with sore throat.  I have been like this for 3 days now and I can't seem to find relief with reg tylenol. Can I take Tylenol Cold?  I really need help because I can't sleep and my chest is staying tight.

Hi Scooterdavis,


You should speak with your OBGYN about whether or not Tylenol Cold is safe for you to take while pregnant.  He/She may also have other medications or advice for you to help you deal with flu symptoms while pregnant.  I hope you feel better soon.
