There are other generic and brand name over-the-counter cold medicines that contain these ingredients. Learn to read the “active ingredients” section of any over-the-counter medication.

For a stuffy nose, try a saline spray like Ocean Nasal Mist. Other nose sprays or drops like Afrin contain a medication that can cause rebound stuffy nose (the stuffiness gets worse when you stop the medication), and will increase your blood pressure.

For a sore throat, a lozenge or cough drop is best. Ice chips and cool liquids are also soothing. Acetaminophen (Tylenol) is safe.

High fever (over 102) Persistent nausea, vomiting or diarrhea (over 24 hours) Severe headache Any concerns regarding the pregnancy (contractions, etc.)

During any illness bed rest and extra fluids are important.
