I have a headache/cold/allergies during pregnancy. Which over the counter medicines can I take?


You should always speak with your doctor before taking over-the-counter medications. The specifics of your health history or pregnancy may make certain medications unsafe for you.

This is the list of over-the-counter medications generally considered safe for use during pregnancy:

• Acetaminophen (Tylenol)
• Diphenhydramine (Benadryl
• Loratadine (Claritin)
• Pseudoephedrine (Sudafed)

Read all packages carefully. Many over-the-counter drugs contain several different ingredients.

I hope that helps, please post any questions you might have!

Kind regards,
