My OB and my pharmacist seem to be at odds about this particular cough-medicine ingredient. While my OB assured me that Robittusin is just fine during pregnancy, my pharmacist told D when he picked some up for me that, especially considering how far along I am, that I shouldn't take anything with Dextromethorphan in it, which crosses just about everything off the list. To make matters more confusing, I'm pretty certain I've heard negative things about this medication before, which leaves me more confused than ever. I put a call in to my GP to see what he has to say about things, but no call back yet. Apparently the whole of Austin is sick :(
Anyone out there with any opinions? For now, I'm toughing it out with cough drops and an extra-strength Tylenol every eight hours, but I know I'd feel better with something a little more heavy-duty!
