Here is a chart to help you decide which over-the-counter (OTC) medications are safe to take during pregnancy. An herbal, natural or homeopathic alternative is also listed. In many cases, it is not advisable to take herbal and OTC at the same time. All OTC and many herbal remedies should not be taken long-term. Please contact your midwife if you have any questions about taking safe medication during pregnancy or alternate remedies. Also, consider regular chiropractic care.
