Don't think so...
For other PG safe remedies, try post #5 of this FAQ section... and try gargling salt water too.

Any medicated cough lozenges are not to be used whilst pregnant.
You know when i was sick and could not have anything what worked for me was......(please don't judge, and it may not work for everyone) was coke Weird I know. But i do know someone else who it also does the trick for them too.
I really hope you can find something that helps you.

I would probably say to check with your chemist/ob as I have heard otherwise. Not saying that what I heard was right or wrong but I trusted the information I got from this person. Apparently difflam doesn't contain the thing that is bad for preg women. I took the rasberry flavoured ones around 20 weeks preg.

Difflam contains an anti inflammatory so it would be on the no no list.
I like just gargling with Listerine. There are plenty of other cough mixtures that would be safe though. Just check with your local pharmacist.
