Perhaps: The cough suppressant in Mucinex (guaifenesin) dm is dextromethorfan. It is ralatively mild cough suppressant and ofter combined with an anti-histamine. I'm not sure what other cough medicine you want to use. Codeine often works better and is available by prescription. If the cough is persistant you probably should see your physician. ...Read more

No data to answer: I have not found any research studies that answer this question. Aguaje is said to be a rich source of phytoestrogens & is traditionally used to increase fertility. I would be cautious during the first trimester (when one should be cautious re: most supps) but as a fruit that is apparently widely eaten in the amazon during pregnancy it is probably safe. ...Read more
Yes, but not much A: Vitamin a is important for the visual health of your baby but too much in early pregnancy is hazardous- women taking more than 10, 000 units in the 1st 7 weeks had a 1.7% risk of birth defects. 4000 units is safe & beta carotene is safe in any amount. A relatively high dose of 4000 units vit d has been shown to reduce gestational diabetes, preterm birth & other pregnancy complications-see comment:. ...Read more
Talk with OB but no: Dayquil contains acetaminophen, dextromethorphan, pseudoephedrine. Acetaminophen (tylenol) is ok but the other two are class c which most OB do not allow. Use nasal saline.

Maybe. Try natural!: You probably mean Mucinex (guaifenesin) dm, which contains. Dexomethorphan. Not a very dangerous medication, but i would advise plain Mucinex (guaifenesin) instead. Better yet, in order to thin secretions 100% safely, drink from a cup some piping hot chicken broth (the real, homemade kind) with as much hot chile pepper added as you can tolerate, which causes copious thin secretions and gets the thick junk out. Seriously! ...Read more
