None of these are regarded to be completely safe during pregnancy. Deriphylline has to be used with extreme caution, especially in early trimester, weighing on the need to use. Dextromethorphan, the ingredient in your cough syrup, is also not recommended at this stage. Since you are suspecting pregnancy, I advice you to see a doctor for confirmation and further advice keeping in mind that you have taken medication. It is not that anything abnormal should happen, most often nothing happens. Good luck.
