I am 31 weeks pregnant can i take nighttime hylands cold and cough to help my cold symptoms so i can sleep?

I would say NO: Herbs in Pregnancy is a huge topic. Hylands has about six herbs in it including Goldenseal which is generally considered to be contraindicated in pregnancy as it may cause premature contractions.

Supportive care: It sounds like you have an upper respiratory infection, which is fairly common in pregnancy; it is usually more of an annoyance than anything else. Due to your pregnancy, it's generally a good idea to avoid using medications if possible; generally safe meds would be tylenol (acetaminophen) and guaifenisen, but discuss with your ob/gyn for an exam and the final ok. ...Read more
