OBGYN 's  Response
All the medications are safe in pregnancy. There is no evidence to recommend use of Progesterone during pregnancy, although it is one of the widely prescribed medicine in India. There is no adverse effect on the baby. Sleepiness could be due to pregnancy itself or general unwell being or due to the cough syrup.
