is Sambucol safe during pregnancy? Bizzle. 1 child; Lake Havasu City, Arizona 18341 posts

i am in my first trimester and this morning i woke up feeling terrible.
i'm pretty sure it's a cold. i'm not coughing or anything.
so i've been going back and forth wondering what is safe for me to take.
i bought a homeopathic cold and flu medicine called Sambucol.
a black elderberry extract dissolving tablet.
it also contains:
zinc gluconate
sambucus nigra
gelsemium sempervirens
bryonia alba
and sulphur



i know i should really talk to my obgyn about this but i am still waiting for a referral and have yet to even see a doctor.
so if anyone has had experience with this medicine can you please let me know?
i'm pretty damn miserable as it is with my 24/7 morning sickness, and this is just icing on the cake :[
