common colds

does anyone know what we can take for a common cold that may actually help symptoms?

Re: common colds

  • Regular Tylenol. It sounds funny but it works.
  • Humidifier & Tylenol

  • Neti pot or saline nasal sprays for nasal/sinus congestion.
  • Ugh, I'd love to know too. Currently I am taking tylenol sinus my Doctor OKed it. I prefer natural remedies though. :(

    Tylenol works - but always double check and ask your doctor first about any questions or concerns !! xx

  • In addition to Tylenol for the fever, you can take Mucinex (without the D), Robitussin (also without the D), and saline nasal spray or neti pot. Def check with your doctor but all of the above are on my safe list from my OB!

  • thanks ladies ... 3 days later and I am not quite feeling like I am going to die anymore....the timing stinks as I work in retail and these are the busiest days...however my boss has been awesome letting me leave early :) hoping to get better soon
  • My OB said Claritin (plain- not D). The first time I took it, it seemed to help (though made me super dry)... Second day, not so much. Now I'm just taking Tylenol here and there and roughing it out. Ugh! This is my second whopper of a cold so far this pregnancy- not fun, the first took me 3 weeks to get over and I ended up with a double ear infection because of it. Hoping that doesnt happen again.

  • Sudafed, the original stuff that you have to ask for at the pharmacy counter.
    Formerly known as elmoali :)

  • My OB allows Tylenol, Robitussin DM, Mucinex, Mucinex DM, Sudafed (regular, not PE), and any anhistamine I prefer (Benadryl, Unisom, Zyrtec, Claritin, or Chlor-Trimeton).

  • I use robitussin dm, but every morning and night I also drink boiled hot water with lemon, honey, and a dash of cinnamon. It helps with sore throats, decongests the sinuses and it tastes almost like cider.
