Hey all, i'm not quite 7 mos. Preg....But almost, and I just came down with this nasty cold and I was wondering if anyone knows how I can get rid of it without meds. So far i've been drinking a lot of orange juice, and I drink warm apple juice with a little bit of honey for my cough. I know I can have tylenol, does that include tylenol cold as well? I swear that's what my doc told me, but I want to be sure. My appt. Isn't until this wed, so i'm tryin' to stick it out until then. Yesterday and friday were awful, but today I do feel better, and i've been out of bed all day. I even went to the store for some quick necessities. Thanks for any info!!

Im dealing with a cold myself and my Dr. Toldme that its okay to take any tylenol including tylenol cold, except extra strength, also you can take sudafed, and benedryl... Id reccomend tylenol cold over sudafed its more effective for me... Good luck with that!

I just got over a cold myself. I didn't know what I could take so mostly I just drank tea, which helped my soar throat. I did though take some buckley's, which i'm not sure is on the okay list but it got so bad that I just couldn't take it anymore. Besides it was only like 2 tsp so I doubt it could have done any harm. Others have told me that tylenol cold is okay, I just have to make sure to ask the dr this time when I go for my next appointment too.
