Does anyone know if cough drops or throat sprays are safe during pregnancy?

Does anyone know if cough drops or throat sprays are safe during pregnancy. I had one pharmasist tell me they were ok so I bought a bag (halls naturals). Then when i went to get another bag I had a different pharmasist tell me they were unsafe. I'm still waiting for a reply from my doctors office. I've been trying honey and tea with honey and it's not working. I'm so tired of coughing and having this scratchy feeling in my throat and the darn antibiotics they gave me are doing nothing. HELP!

  • I'd wait to hear from my doc just to be safe, but mine always told me they were okay. I've heard Vicks applied to the bottom of your feet and then covered with socks will help a cough. I've not tried it, but if you are miserable, it might be worth a shot!
