U should really: Ask your OB doc as your doc may have specific meds he or she wants u to use, i tell my pts take extra vit c 1000mg per day , they can use tylenol( not more than 6 reg ones in 24 hrs), Robitussin plain, plain Claritin (loratadine) if u need to try up your sinuses, throat lozenges, if someone after the 1st trimester has a really bad cough , then sometimes u need codiene in the syrup , but as little as possible.
