Re: Cough and cold relief on first trimester, anyone?
I am 9 weeks pregnant and I took Robitussin. My doctor said that it was fine, and it is on the list of OK medicines to take that I got from my OB/GYN. I truly believe it is worse for the baby if you continue to be sick and possibly get an infection from not treating yourself. I took just the regular Robitussin, and nothing with a decongestant. I was sick, thought that I had bronchitis (but I did not, thank god), and they told me to take Robitussin or Mucinex. That was over the past weekend. I am still not better, but I am better than I was so I have stopped taking medicine now. I am hoping that I will get completely better now without it. I took the Robitussin for about 3 days. I was in so much chest pain that I had to do something. I have not had any ill effects yet (as far as the baby goes), but it has only been a few days since I stopped.
