We used to use Expigen when we were kids but I don't think it's safe when you're pregnant. When I was pregnant and got sick I barely took Panado! Rather steer clear of medications, take more vitamins, rest your body and hopefully your body will fight off the cold in it's own time.

Hope you feel better soon!

Most medication is not safe in pregnancy. Read the leaflet & ask the pharmacist.
