My OB says sudaphed (original psudaphedrine, not the reformulated crap) after the first tri.
cough syrup with just dxm
And I think that is it on his list. I'm also taking zofran(prescription) and dramamine(otc) at his suggestion for hyperemesis (I took way more stuff for it last time, but hopefully I'm keeping down enough this time around that I won't lose too much weight).
i take unisom (it's an over the counter sleeping medication) for morning sickness and i swear it works wonders!!!!!!! I also have hyperemesis and this has worked better than the zofran and reglan combined!!
There is no such thing as a 'safe' medication during pregnancy, especially during the first trimester. There are a few, like Tylenol that are unlikely to cause problems. But really there is ALWAYS risk.
I would recommend if you have no prior experience with pseudoephedrine (in Sudafed and most cold/flu medications) to stay away from it. last time i took it i felt positively spun out...can't imagine i'd choose that over being sick, especially now that i'm pg.
