Soar troat and coughing....

What can we take while pregnant. I was taking Cepacol lozenges and all of a sudden I checked if it was safe for pregnancy and here's what I got:

PREGNANCY and BREAST-FEEDING: If you become pregnant while taking Cepacol Maximum Strength Lozenges, discuss with your doctor the benefits and risks of using Cepacol Maximum Strength Lozenges during pregnancy. It is unknown if Cepacol Maximum Strength Lozenges are excreted in breast milk. If you are or will be breast-feeding while you are using Cepacol Maximum Strength Lozenges, check with your doctor or pharmacist to discuss the risks to your baby.

I took 2... before reading that... hope I didn't do no harm!????! Sad

Halls should be ok right???

Halls is okay. I was also told last week that I could take regular Robitessin, Benedryl, and Claritin. Sorry you're not feeling well Sad

Sounds like post nasal drip from your description - or a virus. Hope you feel better soon. And I wouldnt feel bad about the lozenges, that stuff happens to all of us.

I'm sorry you are sick! I had the same thing! Halls is fine, vicks is fine, and like PP said, you can also take benadryl & claritin. Good luck!
