What can you take for a sore throat while breastfeeding?

Sore throat sprays or lozenges are generally considered safe, as are cough drops. Avoid eating excessive amounts of cough drops containing menthol. Large amounts of menthol can reduce milk supply. Many forms of Robitussin, Delsym and Benylin are considered compatible with breastfeeding.
