Can I take Hyland's Cold'n Cough? I'm 9 weeks pregnant.

YES: Unlike most medicines and herbs, which tend to have questionable or unproven safety in pregnancy, homeopathic medicines are very safe to take during pregnancy. You might also want to take Vitamin C 500 mg 4x/day and zinc acetate lozenges 3x/day. If the Cold'n Cough does not help you might want to try an individualized remedy.
