Is there a cold medicine that I can take at 24 weeks pregnant maybe tylonel based?

Cold therapy: Remember that there is no cure for the cold other than to comfort the symptoms. So if you have nasal congestion use Hypertonic Saline rinse, cool humidifier to help vasoconstriction in the nose. Also, vapor rubs can be helpful. If it is a sore throat otc cough drop or my favorite warm non-caffeinated tea with honey and lemon. Remember zinc and vitamin c can help in decreasing viral load @ onset. ...Read more

Can I take amoxycilin clav 875-125mg with common cold medicine acetaminophen/dextromethorphan/phenylephrine to lessen the effects of throat infection?

Antibiotics URI: No interactions between these meds. There is no evidence to support the use of antibiotics in the treatment of the common cold. Antibiotic treatment causes more harm than benefit. Antibiotics should only be used for bacterial pharyngitis (strep throat). The most common causes of pharyngitis are viral agents. Bacterial coinfections may occur. A rapid strep test or culture can confirm the diagnosis. ...Read more
