I am 12 weeks pregnant. For the last three days, I am suffering from a dry cough. My doctor prescribed me Ambrolite D syrup two teaspoons at bedtime and a Vozet tablet once a day. He said that it is an allergic cough. But, after consuming the medicine for two days, my cough does not improve. I am still coughing. I was advised to take the treatment for five days. Can I wait for more?
A dry cough for more than three days in the absence of breathing difficulties usually suggests viral pharyngitis. You do not need to take antibiotics unless you have a fever. At the same time, you said you are 12 weeks pregnant, so you should try to avoid taking over-the-counter medicines for a cough. It may affect the growing child in your womb.
So, I advise you to do gargles with any good mouthwash three times a day and finish three days of Vozet (Levocetirizine) tablets. If you continue coughing for more than a week, then you should take an expert opinion. For me, it looks just like a sore throat.
