I think you should not take anything as you are scheduled to take Follistim shots tomorrow. Just, take more rest, do not take cold and flu meds, just Tylenol. Gargle with warm water and salt.

Apply Vapour rub on the chest and upper back to open airways. Drink plenty of fluids, especially tea, juice and take vit.C only.

When you see the fertility doctor tomorrow, we can discuss for any other meds you might take.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
