    While you are pregnant? It says on the back of the pack to consult a doctor if pregnant. But doesnt say dont use if pregnant?

    Last time I was pregnant I had a really bad throat and cough and was told not to have Strepsils....I think they contain some anaesthetic that soothes your throat. I found that the pharmasist was really good and explaining which ones I could and couldn't have. You can have simple Linctus (think that's what it's called) but again, can't have any of the Sudafed/Benylin ones.

    Hope that helps. I would ask the pharmasist before you buy. Hope your throat eases off! :hugs:

    On my list of approved medications from my doctor it says that Sucrets or Cepcaol Throat lozenges are fine.
