Read the labels: Those are combination medications, although paragrip c ingredients look safe, in a sense that there are no data confirming harm to baby at this stage, you still ought to be careful in reading the labels on any drug OTC during any stage in pregnancy and don't exceed recommended dosage and duration. If symptoms are uncontrollable see your doctor, wish you a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby
