Our expert says:
Unfortunately, no decongestant is proven safe during pregnancy. Therefore, irrigation of the sinusses with salt water, is effective and safe. You can also use Sinex Saline Mist, which is only salt water that is sprayed into the nose to alleviate congestion.
Panado is safe to use during pregnancy for pain and fever. Sucking Halls menthol mints might also help alleviate congestion.
