Hi Dear,

Welcome to HCM.

Understanding your concern. As per your you have heavy cough during pregnancy which could be due to respiratory tract infection. I would suggest you not to take any self prescribed medication during pregnancy for cough as almost every type of medication is contraindicated. I would suggest you to take home remedies such as do gargle with saline warm water . Drink green tea in morning everyday. Avoid intake of oily, fried food and cold carbonated liquids. You should visit ENT specialist and get it examined thoroughly and start treatment after proper prescription. You should apply mist humidifiers in room and take cough expectorants.

Hope your concern has been resolved.

Get Well Soon.

Best Wishes,
Dr. Harry Maheshwari
