Response to BFP, but cold PLUS Afrin withdrawal... help?

When I got PG I received a packet and it had a list of Do's and Don'ts in PG

The safe medications list says: (I havent taken any meds at all so far but saw this post and wanted to just weigh in )

Tylenol, Milk of Magnesia, Colace, Robitussin, Sudafed, Afrin nasal spray, Benadryl, Pepcid, Zantac, preparation H, Tylenol Cold, Claritin, Allegra, Monistat 3, Cortaid Cream.


I personally am a wreck and won't take so much as a Tylenol but I just wanted to put this on here ....I wonder why some Drs would say No to Afrin and this group says yes...

Good luck. Maybe you could go to your local health food store and see if they have anything more homeopathic? Congrats on your BFP too happy.gif
