Welcome to icliniq.com.
If both of you are trying to conceive, then for common cold you may opt for conservative management with Paracetamol tablets for fever and saline warm water gargling thrice a day and steam inhalation twice a day. Also increase her water intake to 12-15 glasses a day, this shall help recover sooner.Paracetamol is safe for pregnancy and is free from any congenital side effects even if you conceive.
Secondly, if the fever is not controlled and the cough worsens and sputum becomes yellow, then she can be given a three day course of capsule Azithromycin 500 mg once a day. It is also safe in early pregnancy though should be used restrictively. I believe the other small tablet prescribed to you may be tablet Cetirizine 5 mg twice a day, which is an antihistamine. It can be taken, but not for more than three days.
