    Some people will tell you "it's ok because I took it with all my pregnancies and my kids are fine" That is not the case. There are chances that are being taken with meds. Like the link says you weigh the cons and pros. It is youre choice too and best thing you can do is call youre doctor.

    Hope this helps.

    It was reccomended to me to NOT take them, I chose not to. I used other methods for sore throats including tea with honey and found that that worked quite well. Also make sure that you drink lots of water to stay hydrated because I have found that when I am dehydrated my throat is more susceptable to being sore. Take care.

    The chemist told me I could have something like Soothers which is basically a glorified sweet but nothing at all with medication in it. Hope you're feeling better soon:hugs:

    I have a tickly cough , I found the most unusual thing that helps .
    Sucking on extra strong mints !! Lol sounds crazy but maybe worth a try to see if it helps u hun ? . Good luck . xx .

    P.s some one told me a home made hot drink with Lemon,Honey,sugar helps too allthow havent tried it . xx .
