Is it safe to take cold medicine while pregnant? I'm only 6 weeks.

According to the information I got from my OB, it is not recomended to take any medication in the first twelve weeks of pregnancy without first checking with your OB. It is safe to use a vaporizor while sleeping and saline nose spray.Good luck and feel better
