In brief: Mostly Yes

Tylenol (acetaminophen) Sinus, Sudafed, Robitussin, ZiCam, and Mucinex are all generally safe in pregnancy.
Very important to avoid aspirin and ibuprofen (Motrin) based drugs including Alka-seltzer. Colds do not require antibiotics unless a secondary infection develops such as a sinus infection, bronchitis, or pneumonia.
