Vicks Vapo Steam - Update

I've been battling this cold for over a month now on and off. H is setting up the humidifier in our room. He was going to add the Vicks Vapo Steam cough suppressant to the water. It says if pregnant to call my doc. I'll do that tomorrow. I figure one night will be fine.
Almighty Google has very little info.
Has anyone used this product? Did it work? Does anyone know if it is safe during pregnancy?
If it was non medicated like the Vicks plug-ins I wouldn't even question it.

  • Isn't it just eucalyptus oil? I think it You are safe.

  • The active ingredient is Camphor.
    Eucalyptus oil, alcohol, cedar leaf oil, menthol and a few others are inactive ingredients.
    I'm hesitant because it's a medicated version.

  • The humidifier should help you feel less congested. I would hold off one more night to be sure

    That's what I'm leaning towards. H is just over anxious to help me out. It's been rough around here.

  • Oh no. I hope you feel better. I know how much it sucks to be sick and not be able to take anything.

  • Nurse at OB office said it's safe.

    It works like a miracle drug!!!!!!!!!

    I slept better last night than I have in about a month and a half. I didn't wake up coughing all night. I woke up feeling great too.
