    Default Medications that are 'allowed'?

    Does anyone know what cold/cough/decongestant medications are allowed at this point in pregnancy?

    I've got a cough with all the fun mucas junk in my throat and it won't go away. Any ideas on what I can take to make it go away that actually works? I've never taken OTC medications during pregnancy before.

    Sudafed(plain jane sudafed) can be used. cough drops, tylenol, showers/baths, sitting in the bathroom with the door shut and the hot water running might help.

    According to Chart: Over-the-counter medications during pregnancy | BabyCenter these are safe. Maybe call your dr before you take much though.

    Guaifenesin, an expectorant (Hytuss, Mucinex, Naldecon Senior EX, Robitussin)
    Dextromethorphan, a cough suppressant (Benylin Adult, Robitussin Maximum Strength Cough, Scot-Tussin DM, Vicks 44 Cough Relief)
    Guaifenesin plus dextromethorphan (Benylin Expectorant, Robitussin DM, Vicks 44E)
    Cough drops
    Vicks VapoRub

    Not safe to take:
    Cold remedies that contain alcohol
    The decongestants pseudoephedrine and phenylephrine, which can affect blood flow to the placenta
