  • Risks
  • Dimetapp Cold And Allergy (Phenylephrine / Brompheniramine) can harm unborn babies. Brompheniramine can increase the risk of a birth defect in an unborn baby if you take it during the last 3 months of pregnancy (last trimester). Phenylephrine can also be unsafe to take during the first 3 months of pregnancy (first trimester). Instead, it's safer to use a decongestant nasal spray for up to 3 days. Talk with your doctor or pharmacist about what's safe and will work best for you while pregnant.
