My last period was on 25th February 2020. I have done urine test twice at home and it is positive and I do have other symptoms of pregnancy. I am sure that I am pregnant. Due to Corona situation, I am afraid to get out and do other tests and see the doctor.
I do have a dry cough for the last one month and some time with white mucus. Mostly when I eat rice, and spicy food my cough starts. I have called a gynecologist and she told me to have Adovas after lunch and Duvent (Rupatadine 10 mg) after dinner for seven days. After seven days, I called her and told her that I feel a little better but not stopped coughing and she advise me to take Adovas only three times a day. I did and it did not help me at all.
I called her again and she advises Montelukast 10 mg after dinner and its also not working. It has been four days since I took Montelukast and I feel like I need to deep breath when I take it. I have only cough, no fever, no pain, no breathing problem, no headaches, and no running nose. As you know in this Corona situation I cannot go out with a cough to get other tests or see a doctor for my pregnancy advice and lab test. Would you please help me advising good medicine so my cough stops.
Other than the above, I am taking Folic Acid 5 mg two times moring and evening as she told me do I need to take anything else for my pregnancy at this moment. Please help.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Congratulations on your pregnancy.
Let me tell you in the first three months of pregnancy vomiting sensation, gaseous state, mood swings, breast, and back pain are common. I understand it is not possible to have a consultation now.
For cough, do stream inhalation three times a day, tablet Azithromycin 500 mg twice daily for five days, syrup Dextromethorphan / Guaiphenesin combination 5 ml twice daily for five days. (We get it as syrup Ascoril in India). You will be fine.
Folic acid is a must once a day till your pregnancy, and tablet Doxinate (Doxylamine) twice daily before food will prevent nausea and vomiting.
