    In our culture, a pregnant woman should be wary of taking any kind of medication even for the common colds. It is believed that the baby in the womb may be affected negatively that the birth could have defects. That is a good reason for the pregnant woman to be careful in getting contaminated.

    It's always ok to be taking medications, but only the ones that don't require a receipt, since they are not as harsh as the ones that require a receipt.

    The best thing to do in this situation would be to conduct thorough research, or preferably, talk to a doctor who would be able to give you tailored advice.

    Medicine is complex and can interact together in strange, unpredictable ways. Although I personally prefer to take as few medications as possible regardless (as does my partner), a doctor would always be able to give the best recommendation.

    I don't understand what you mean by medication that don't have receipts. Please you elaborate more on this.
