    So since Sunday night, I've been sick. It started off like the flu, sore throat, runny nose etc. then it got worse and I didn't get out of bed at all and my asthma has gotten a bit bad, I read two of the cough medicine bottles that we have here and one said don't consume while pregnant, the other didn't but I didn't risk it anyway. What do you think?

    Cough syrups are pretty much placebos anyway. A cough drop or throat lozenge should have about the same effect.

    Well I know that you shouldn't take like cold and flu tablets and stuff like that so I thought it would just be the same with cough medicines :shrug: thanks for link!

    Oh I just read the link, and I was aware that most cold and flu tablets work as placebos (being in your head correct?) but I didn't know that cough medicines were.

    I know I always told Mom when I was little that they didn't work. She insisted that they did and that since she was a nurse, she'd know.

    Growing up and finding out that I was right was vindication, lol. I HATED cough syrups as a kid, they tasted gross and never helped.
