Dry Cough Medicine That Is Safe For 4 Weeks Pregnant Women?
I was pregnant about 4 weeks but now I am coughing dry. Yesterday I didn’t know I was pregnant, so I took Obh Combi cough medicine, itrabat, OB Herbal or Laserin. Do you think it’s safe for me ?? if not, what medication is safe for me in trimester 1 ??
Hello, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
For pregnant women, you should avoid taking drugs without consulting a doctor. Because these drugs can have an effect on the mother or fetus. Medication is only prescribed if it is needed and cannot be overcome with rest or lifestyle improvement. You can do the following things to deal with coughing during pregnancy:
Get plenty of rest and manage stress well. Avoid smoking or cigarette smoke. Drink plenty of water and eat nutritious food. Take a warm bath. Hot steam can help reduce shortness of breath or nasal congestion. Lemon and honey, or eating warm soup may help relieve itching in the throat. Use a pillow that is stacked high enough during sleep so that breathing is more relieved and not blocked with phlegm. If the cough does not get better or getting worse, then you should consult with a doctor right away.
