  • For coughs I use honey. It coats the throat. Also drink hot liquids. Feel better mom!

  • Try putting Vicks Vapor Rub on your feet and cover with socks. It sounds crazy but it works.

  • Most doctors allow cough drops.. I know its not much :( Might help some.

  • I was told when I was pregnant that I could take PLAIN Tussin-- not DM or CF. I've heard of the Vicks thing. Couldn't hurt to try it!

  • i was told to take Benadryl for anything sinus related - as for the cough ... i currently have a bad one and i am using those cough drops that numb your throat Cepacol and TONS of decaff hot tea, and steam showers.

  • you can take regular PLAIN robutissun no extra strenth or anything like that.

  • Yep, regular Robitussin (NOT DM). Careful with the cough drops, there is an ingredient that isn't so good for pregnancy in them (licorice related), but it's okay in moderation.
