Can I take cold medicine in the early stages of pregnancy?

The early stages of pregnancy are the most important period for fetal growth and development. If there is a mild cold, it is generally not recommended to treat it with cold medicines, because, at this time, a little careless use of drugs can lead to fetal deformities.


During this period, you can adjust to the state of the cold by changing your daily life and eating habits. Usually try to pay attention to rest, drink plenty of warm water, keep warm, and eat a bland diet. If you have symptoms of runny nose, sneezing, and nasal congestion, you can drink some ginger water or boil some white radish water in moderation to relieve the symptoms of colds. If you have a sore throat or cough, you can boil some rock sugar pear water to drink. 


When boiling rock sugar pear water, add fritillary to it. This can moisturize the lungs, relieve cough, and reduce phlegm. If the cold is particularly severe during this period, you can choose some proprietary Chinese medicine preparations such as honeysuckle granules in moderation. The side effects of this drug are relatively small and the impact on the fetus is relatively tiny.


Is it okay to take cold medicine in the early stages of pregnancy?


If you have symptoms of a mild cold in the early stages of pregnancy, try not to take medicine and drink plenty of water. You can take rock sugar stewed Sydney or brown sugar stewed ginger slices. If these can be relieved, it is best not to take medicine to reduce the impact on the fetus.


If the symptoms are slightly more severe and accompanied by fever, you can use antipyretic patches to physically cool down, and at the same time take some radix root granules orally for symptomatic treatment. 


If the effect of self-treatment is still not significantly improved, it is recommended to come to the hospital as soon as possible, draw blood for routine blood tests, and be sure to deal with the symptoms under the guidance of a doctor.
