I've had a shocking cough following a chest infection for the last month. Pharmacists have told me cough suppressants aren't recommended in the third trimester so I've just been dealing with it, but it's getting really painful now so would love to find something that helps. Does anyone know of anything, natural or otherwise, that I can take? I'm a few days off 36 weeks.

Yep honey helps. I had whooping cough last year and it was the only thing that helped a little.
P. S Google cough medicine and you'll see that numerous studies all conclude cough medicine doesn't help. Only pharmacists recommend it Cause it makes them alot of money!

What about Rikodeine? It's a codeine based cough suppressant. And yes it does work. Not 100% sure if it's safe or not, you'd have to ask your pharmacist, but I remember having it... during pregnancy maybe or maybe it was breastfeeding.

I was told not to take codeine based medication while breastfeeding or while pregnant?
