Pregnancy & Cold medicine
Hi,

I am 6 weeks pregnant and have a terrible cold. My pharmacist gave me ILIADIN nasal spray and panado's. I just want to know if the ILIADIN is safe. It contains Oxymetalzoline HCI 0.5mg and uses Benzalkonium chloride 0.01% as a preservative.

Thanks

Very little is absorbed from a nasal spray so you should be okay.
