Tylenol Cold And Flu Breastfeeding
Hello, I have a cold and took Tylenol cold and flu last night. Can I take NyQuil severe tonight? It’s been a full 24 hours
Yes, you may:
Check the acetaminophen content of all the medications you take to make sure that you do not take more than 4.0 grams in one day.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex.
Get HPV vaccine, if you are under 27 years of age. ...Read more

Yes, although...: The older your baby is, the safer it will be. (if baby is less than 2 months old, more caution is advised). One of the ingredients (pseudoephedrine) has the potential to cause some irritability in baby and a decrease to your milk supply. As with any OTC medication while breastfeeding, take for the shortest duration possible, only as needed, and dose according to bottle instructions. ...Read more

Can I give my 5 & 7 yr olds Tylenol or ibuprofen to reduce flu aches/fever if giving them Simulasan cold, mucus & immune relief (homeopathic)? Thank y
Maybe ok: Truly homeopathic "medications" are made by repeated dilutions, so that the ingredient is not really there anymore (just the "essence" of it remains). That means there is no active ingredient left to cause any benefit. However, that also implies that the homeopathic "medicine" should be pretty harmless, unless some other non-homeopathic ingredient (such as some decongestant chemical) was added. ...Read more
I'm on sprintec birth control pills, what cold/ flu medication can I take that won't effect my birth control? What pain killers (Advil, tylenol)?
Wash hands: If you have a cold it is ok to continue breastfeeding. Make sure you thoroughly wash your hands and avoid coughing on the baby. It is not flu season yet in Texas so influenza is not very likely. Make sure you get your flu shot when available (In Texas usually late Sept/early Oct). ...Read more
Rest, fluids, Motrin: Sorry to hear you are feeling sick. If your symptoms are caused by a cold virus, there aren't any special medicines needed.

Drinking a lot of fluids, resting as much as possible, and using Ibuprofen for comfort (400mg every 6-8 hours as needed) can help! ...Read more

What over the counter medicine can she use if she has symptoms of cold, sinus, or flu? She's a breastfeeding mother.
I am breastfeeding and just getting over a itchy rash all over my body. Today I feel hot and cold similar to flu like symptoms without the aches pains?
Possible mastitis: Any time you get chills and fever while breast-feeding, your gynecologist will want to know about it. It's quite common for a nursing mom to develop an infection in her breast, called mastitis. Chills and fever could be an early sign of this, but you will probably get local soreness and redness of one breast and body aches too, if that is what you have. If not very sick, probably a routine virus. ...Read more
I have bodyaches, weak, no fever or cough & I feel very cold. Could this be the flu? I'm a breastfeeding mother to a 3 month old baby.

Get plenty of sleep, eat properly and take something to help you feel better. Otherwise you will have to see your pcp. Get the flu shot if you have not had yours yet. ...Read more
