Sinus during pregnancy

11/01/2006

Question:

Hi, I am 20 weeks pregnant with really bad sinus headaches. I asked my doctor who gave me a list and Tylenol Sinus was on the list. I did not know which one to choose from seeing that Walgreens carries alot of different types of Tylenol Sinus medication. I asked the pharmactist who gave me the Walgreens brand "Wal-phed" which only contains Pseudoephedrine Hydrochloride 30mg as the active ingredient.

Is this safe for me to take?

Please help I am despiretly in pain.

Answer:

This medication is considered safe to use in pregnancy as long as you have no issues with high blood pressure.
