I have a horrible cold....stuff nose, sore throat....sinus pressure, yuck.

I'm pretty sure I have heard sudafed is a no-no because it can dry up your milk, but does anyone know of anything that helps and is ok to take??? Just looking for some BTDT advice....

Thanks.

Just fyi..and a question. I requested the guafinasin (sp?) at the pharmacy...and asked where it ranked in the index. It is a C..meaning there have been no studies done on it. I decided against using it. Do you have other info about it?

sinus rinse

You could try this, i use mine whenever I am sick and it helps. If nothing else I seem to get better faster. It is harmless.

THat must be its rating during PG? Ratings for Lactation Risk Categories while BFing are L1 (safest), L2 (safer), L3 (Moderately safe), and so on.

From Kellymom
Guaifenesin
not reviewed

L2 (safer)
