Suggest medicine for runny nose and coughing during pregnancy

good morning. my wife who is 23 weeks pregnant has been battling cold symptoms for 2 weeks now. runny nose, fatigue, coughing, congestion. she has been trying to not take anything, but just not seem to helping any of her symptoms. what would be a safe over the counter for her to take? tylenol?, sudafed?, anything? thank you.

Hi.

Tylenol should be okay, but it will only help to suppress the symptoms temporarily, and will not really do much on a long term basis. As I am not her gynaecologist I would only recommend to contact her gynaecologist and ask the doctor what would be best for your wife at this moment.

Best wishes.
