Is quinine safe in pregnancy?


For example drinking it in tonic water for leg cramps?

Hi ive been trying to find any info on google etc about this but some say its ok others to just stay away. Maybe call your midwife or get the doctors to give you a ring back an ask them?

Will do. What is supposed to be wrong with it anyway? I'm sure the midwife would have said to stay away from drinks with it in when she read out the list of not to eat and drink at the first meeting if it was a no no xx

I'm sure it's fine in tonic water as it would definately be on the 'Not to ...' list

I drink tonic water if I go out now not able to drink but also drink it if I start with restless legs, I'm sure it's fine It won't have the content of quinine in that the prescibed dose will have, which is 300mg per tablet.

I drink it for leg cramps, and haven't had any problems. I don't think you have anything to worry about.
