I woke up today totally dosed with a cold or maybe flu. I am like one of those sick people in the beginning of a Nightquil commercial except I am pretty sure I can't take any cold or flu meds so I am not going to be waking up after a good nights sleep happy and refreshed.

Is there any meds I can take? And I guess a good old hot whiskey is out too?

The thing my OBs office says I can take for a cold is Robotussin, but I can't remember which particular one... Let me find the list...

***here goes***
Cold Medications — Decongestants, Expectorants and Cough Suppressants
Women who already have borderline or slightly elevated blood pressure should consult their provider.* Some of cold medications can cause vasoconstriction of blood vessels and elevated blood pressure which may impair the blood flow to the fetus, and can affect the health and growth of the baby.

Safe for use:
Guafensin (Mucinex®, Robitussin®)
Dextromethorphan* (Robitussin® DM, Vicks® Formula 44®)
Cough Drops
Vicks® VapoRub®
Do Not Use:
Pseudoephedrine, phenylepherine (Sudafed®)
Cough and Cold medicines containing alcohol
Contact your health care provider if symptoms of a cold of flu persist for more than 3-7 days of if accompanied by a fever of 101.4F or higher.
