DayQuil and 9 months pregnant !!

Soooo I have a sore throat and I was wondering if I can take dayquil? I'm 38 weeks pregnant and I know you can only take tynelol but it's not really helping ....... I called my doctor but he been in the hospital all day delivering baby and the nurse told me DayQuil was okay but idk I'm so sketchy when it comes to taking medicine... What should I do?
