What drug can a woman of 5 weeks pregnancy take for flu and catarrh that will not affect the baby?

1 Doctor Answered
Tablet cetrizine is very safe during pregnancy she can take it as many days she wants. Cough medicines are usually safe during pregnancy. Most of the time normal cough does not require any medicines. Conservative treatment like steam inhalation is usually sufficient only if there is fever you can give her paracetamol.
