I have an AWFUL caugh...

I have a caugh that hurts so bad! My chest feels like it is being crushed. I have a regular doc appt on tuesday, but this is awful! I am 31 weeks pregnant. What can I take to supress the caugh besides caugh drops which are not helping in the least?

  • Been there. Take Robitussin. I was due around the same time as you and the same thing happened to me. Feel better. You are so kind. Happy and Merry Holidays.

  • Take an equal amount of garlic and ginger. Boil it down until it is a syrup. Add a little bit of honey and take a couple teaspoons. This really works and is good for all ages.

  • Well, you need to expell the crud in your chest, not supress it. I would only take a suppressant when it was bedtime so you'd get a better night's sleep.

    When I was pregnant the doc said I could take Actifed...but you should call your doctor first to find out if that's still on the list of meds that are ok since it changes all the time, lol.

  • sounds like bronchitis, if so, you need a prescription and not sure what they can do for you being pregnant. good luck
