Is it safe to take Robitussin-DM while pregnant?

Is it safe to take Robitussin-DM while pregnant?

Yes, but not much.: Maternal use of standard otc doses of robitussin dm when used as an antitussive during the first trimester of pregnancy has not been found to increase the risk of teratogenic effects.

I am 33 weeks pregnant. Is it safe to take Robitussin-DM max? I ave a runny nose and cough/congestion. When i cough the right side of my torso hurts.

No: Robitussin dm (guaifenesin and dextromethorphan) contains alcohol, which while it is not in a large amount, can be significant if you are taking even recommended doses every 4 hours or so. There is no amount of alcohol considered safe in pregnancy, so i would ask your pharmacist for an alcohol-free cough medication safe in pregnancy. The other stuff in it are dextromethorphan and antihistamines. Your OB is your first/best advisor. ...Read more

Not that I know of: There is a reason people say something tastes like cough medicine.....The ingredients and many have an alcohol base that just makes them taste yucky.

I just used a dose of Robitussin (DM) without reading the "do not use" portion, should I be nervous since I take 100mg Sertraline?

I just used a dose of Robitussin (DM) without reading the "do not use" portion, should I be nervous since I take 100mg Sertraline?

No you shouldn't be: nervous, just don't take any extra Robitussin DM, the problem is with the DM part which interacts with Sertraline. The Dextromethorphan (DM), will be cleared off your system in about 12 hours, the Sertraline lingers much more, you will be fine, best wishes ...Read more
