Tylenol Cold and Flu and benadryl are completely safe during pregnancy.



Check out safefetus.com for any future concerns on medication.

No problem! I took Robitussin DM when I got really sick with bronchitis. Many women say not to take it, but..My doctor told me it was fine. Cough drops are safe, also!



Benadryl can be used for the lack of sleep, too. Tylenol PM, as well. (:
