They recommend you take medicines without decongestants bc they aren't safe during pregnancy
I actually just looked online for my Dr's office (I forgot there was a list) and it said pseudoephedrine is fine to take.
Robitussin is safe also. I just went to walmart and got me the biggest bottle. Benedryl isn't doing anything except making me sleepy right now. I have kept sinus infections since the weather has changed and I refuse to get back on antibotics this close to my due date.
Does robitissin help with breaking up mucas? That's what I'm having a problem with, not so much a cough.
Most of the otc stuff just suppresses coughs. If you really want to help break up mucus, drink plenty of fluids-water. (Dairy will thicken it) It will help it come out easier. There's mucinex but I've never used it n I'm sure the label will say to check with your doctor if you are pregnant, before using.
Try simple salt gargles 3-4 times a day, steam and lot of warm liquids.. tht will Def help and give some relief...
