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. Dextromethorphan should be avoided during pregnancy, though, due to its respiratory depressant and potential addictive effects on the mother-fetus unit.

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...
