the best way is to use some cooling agents like fan. You can use a damp moist cloth evry 2 hourly to wipe off the sweat. Tablets are better avoided as it can cause birth defects in the foetus. Eat healthy and drink adequate water. Do not self medicate. After the baby is born you can start with the medications and also you need to check the babies thyroid status at birth and at 3 and 6 months and if any symptoms worsen call your emergency number. I hope i have answered your query . Take care
