I am 8 months pregnant. I have been sick for about 4 days

Customer Question

I am 8 months pregnant. I have been sick for about 4 days now. Coughing up a lot of green phlegm. I am coughing so much my muscles hurt. I am also very congested and blowing my nose a lot. I thought about going to a minute clinic but if they are going to tell me the only thing I can take is Musinex, then I would rather save my money. Musinex just seems to make me cough up more and feel worse. Any advice would be appreciated.

generally there are a lot more medictions that can be used during pregnancy. Depending on the kind of infection an antibiotic treatment could be indicated too. So anyway I would suggest to visit the clinic to get effective help.

Hope you get well soon, best regards,
