  • You should really call your OB and ask. I'm pretty sure Robitusin is OK.

  • I'd just take tylenol for the fever and treat the cold symptoms with home remedies, not meds.

  • Robitusin NOT the DM kind.. just the plain kind is totally safe for use. It has no Alcohol in it. Tylenol for fever. Hope you feel better =)
