My name is ***** ***** I was just reading your answer

Customer Question

Customer: Hi my name is ***** ***** I was just reading your answer regarding phenylephrine nose drops during pregnancy.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: I am nine weeks pregnant and have a cold where I cannot breathe, the only thing that helps is the phenylephrine drops. I understand it is class C but I'm not taking 10mg pills of the stuff, just a 1% solution one drop about every two hours...
JA: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $18) to post your type of question to OB GYN Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. We can help you for less if you're not in a rush. Are you willing to wait a bit?
Customer: ok...
JA: OK. Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.
