Question: Febrex Plus for pregnant woman

User avatar Hello,
This drug is not available in the U.S. and so regulation is limited and I do not have information. I believe it is an antihistamine/decongestant for cold symptoms and in the U.S. these types of medications are usually safe in pregnancy as long as you do not have high blood pressure or other underlying problems. For this reason it is most important to discuss with your doctor any medications you take in pregnancy.

Best wishes.
