  • I was told to only use the non-menthol kind while pregnant. I would call the doctor or pharmacist to make sure.

  • Many cough drops do have medication in them, so I'm not sure where this opinion comes from that they are candy, Ask the pharmacist at the drug store to be sure. They'll have a list of what is safe to use and what is not.
