Is it safe to take any cough suppression medicine or cough candy while I'm pregnant (I'm at 16 weeks)?
I allow patients to use over-the-counter cough medications; there are particular brands that I recommend. You should check with your own physician about their policy toward taking cough suppression medications and other cold remedies during your pregnancy. You will find differences of opinion among practitioners.
