Brief Answer: SAFE IS USED SHORT TERM. Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for writing to us with your health concern. With regards to your medications - 1. Nasivion is oxymetazoline, which is pregnancy category C, it is best avoided in pregnancy. 2. Augmentin Duo is pregnancy category B, the benefits outweigh the risks. 3 . Fluticasone Spray too is best avoided when pregnant 4.Vapvol is safe. However, at 29 weeks, most organ systems in the baby are formed. If these medications are for a short period ( maximum a week ) then it is alright to take them. Do not take them for a longer period of time. Also, please take them after showing your gynecologist the prescription, as she would be intimately familiar with your history and risks. All the best Please feel free to discuss further.
