Medications to Avoid During Pregnancy

While pregnant, it is incredibly important to remember that everything ingested into your body passes from your blood to the baby’s blood. This makes it crucial to avoid drugs sold without a prescription from a health care professional, especially in the initial eight weeks of pregnancy.

If you fall ill during pregnancy, before taking over-the-counter medicine, consider other natural options. For cold and cough, have plenty of rest and extra fluid and use a cool mist vaporizer. If conditions worsen, go to your doctor to receive a prescription. Take exactly what you are prescribed.

If taking medication, remember these tips:

  • Try to take the smallest effective dose for the shortest possible time.
  •  Follow all directions given by a health professional; never take medication on an empty stomach.
  • Ask about potential side effects and what should be reported to your doctor.

There are a few medications that are considered safe, but always remember to consult your doctor first. If you are suffering from Cold, hay fever or cough symptoms try Chlor-Trimeton, Sudafed, Actifed, or Robitussin. For Constipation, Docusate (Colace), Metamusic, or Milk of Magnesia but do not use mineral oil.

For minor headaches or body aches take Tylenol or any acetaminophen. Do not take aspirin or ibuprofen while pregnant because it may interfere with blood clotting and create problems during labor and delivery.

If you have a fever above 100.5, call the clinic. If it is less than 100.5, take Tylenol every 4 hours.

Do not count on your gut feeling or judgement to know if you’re doing okay with or without medication. Always stay in contact with your physician, friends or family.
