cold medicine?

So I am getting a cough and sore throat and need some relief. I called my doctor but had to leave a message. I don't know what is safe to take ? Any of you ladies know what's safe to take for a cough and cold during pregnancy?

If it's allergy related you can take Claritin... Or however it is spelled. If it's cold related really you can only take Tylenol cold and flu. Web MD has a list... Here is the link

My doctor only let me take robitusin cough and chest congestion but it depend on how far along you are, i was in my first trimester, you may be able to take something else if your in your third
