Can I take Hall cough drops while I am pregnant?

A:

Several medications are safe to take while an individual is pregnant, and this includes cough drops and some cough syrups according to WebMD. Always check with an obstetrician before taking any medication or vitamins while pregnant.

Approximately two-thirds of all pregnant women take one or more prescription medications while pregnant, and the majority of these drugs have not been studied adequately for their effects on an unborn baby according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It’s best to avoid taking any type of medication unless it is absolutely necessary and approved by a doctor, especially during the first trimester of the pregnancy.
