Pregnancy: There are variety of antibiotics that are safe in pregnancy and many of the over-the-counter cough medications are safe as well. I would advise you to talk to your doctor and determine whether or not you need an antibiotic for your symptoms. If you decide to use an over-the-counter medication read the box carefully and ensure that the medication is safe.
