    I feel your pain... my is allergies, I think. My pharmacist said that sudafed PE was the best choice, if I had to take something. They said to take it right after BF so that it could weaken in your system before you BF again.

    For a cold, I just drank lots and lots of water. It gets your sinuses open and the mucus flowing so that you can breath. You should probably get a humidifier for that dry cough -it does wonders for me.

    As for allergies, I don't really know, but omg do they suck when I do get them.

    my LC said anything Tylenol was ok, but to stay away from anything with Pseudoephedrine or a decongestant because it can cause a supply loss.
