Can pregnant women take tylenol sinus congestion  and pain cold pills

Check ingredients: These products contain a cocktail of four or more medications--avoid ibuprofen, Naproxen and Aspirin in pregnancy. Tylenol/acetaminophen is fine, and i don't see harm with Guaifenesin or phenylephrine. As a rule it's probably better to just buy the individual medication/s you need for symptom relief, even when you're not pregnant--avoid these cocktails. ...Read more

Ask you OBGYN: Contrary to popular belief, the use of tylenol is not contraindicated in most liver diseases if the total daily dose is < 3000-4000 mg. The exceptions would be acute tyenol overdose and active alcoholic liver disease. I would ask your obstetrician to ensure there is no contraindications from a fetal standpoint. ...Read more

If you must take something, take the minimal effective amount of medication for the particular symptom you are trying to manage. ...Read more
