    I'm not sure what you can take to be honest. I'd ask at the chemists - see what they suggest? I'm pretty sure that paracetamol is ok though.

    Tylenol won't really help me with what I'm going through right now. :(

    I'm dying though. Does anyone know if like Vicks for under my nose is fine? And Halls lozenges and what not?

    i had an extremely bad cold 2 or so ago. Took paracetomol and a splash of pholcodine *sp* (said *foal co dean*) at night simply because i didn't feed overnight. I really struggled during the day and i asked at pharmacist, the only thing he could advise was honey n lemon glycerin.

    I can't c why vicks would make a differnce as it's an external product. I pinched some of my daughters snufflebabe and used that it's quite strong actually!

    Yeah - Pharmacist said only Advil.. I don't get what a pain killer will do for me when it's a head cold... but ok! lol.

    I just got some Halls Vitamin C cough drops for my throat, and one of those Vicks Inhalers for my nose to keep it nice and clear.

    It's gonna be a lonnnng day if he's cranky and doesn't want to nap all day like I want to! haha!
