I have developed a horrible tickly coff and have some buttercup cough medicine, i have tried looking up on t'internet if it is safe to take but couldn't find anything! could anyone enlighten me as to whether it is safe.
When I tried to buy some in Tesco the pharmacist wouldn't let me because it contains alcohol. Seeing as some people drink small amounts through pregnancy I would have thought it was ok but he recommended Simple Linctus instead. I'm in 3rd trimester btw which may make a difference.
Before I knew I was pregnant with dc1, I took a dose of Buttercup syrup for a cough. When I mentioned it to the pharmacist, he gave me a telling-off so I guess he wouldn't recommend it. Check with a pharmacist - in the meantime, honey is supposed to help, although I find chocolate better for coating the throat and helping a tickly cough.
