  • You can always call your OB's office and ask a nurse about which medications are OK when you're pregnant. They're very good at answering this sort of question.

  • I know the bottle say not to use while pregnant. But I asked my doctor when I was and he said it was fine. Just do not put it up in your nose. Rub on your throat and under your nose. Hope it helps and hope you feel better soon.

  • It was not on my list of okay'd medicines so I asked the pharmacist about it. She couldn't find anything that said not to use it, so she said if I could get by without it, then I should probably not use it. Or if I needed it, just to use it sparingly. I decided to pass on it.
