I'm new from 1st tri as I'm now 13 weeks I've moved over.
So my question is I've this morning I've taken some paracetmol extra which meaning they have caffine in and on the leaflet it says you shouldn't take if pregnant :/, so now I'm real worried. Have rang the pharmacy and they said I should be fine just don't take anymore.
Should be fine babe... you are allowed caffiene.. just limited nowadays.. so maybe don't drink any coke/tea/coffee today.
My antibiotics i'm on say not to take if pregnant.. but the doctor said they are abso fine (for urine infection)... I think ALL meds say "do not take if pregnant or breastfeeding" or they say "tell doctor before taking if you are preg"
If pharmacy say its fine.. im' sure it is but if you want peace of mind, maybe call up your GP for THEIR advice?
You'll be fine, i took paracetamol extra a few weeks ago as I had a really sore head and didn't have normal paracetamol. Extra and Normal are both 500mg I'm sure the only difference is caffiene which you can take up to 200g of a day.
Also the tablets I was prescribed to combat morning (all day and night) sickness say on them not to take during pregnancy.
One dose won't hurt. As said above, avoid caffeinated drinks for the rest of the day and it will be fine. If you still need the paracetamol just get the bog standard 16p cheapo ones, they have nothing else in them and are fine to take within the recommended dose on the packet.
I wouldnt worry too much hun the only reason they're classed as "extra" is because they have caffeine in and it's meant to make them work faster, I've taken them in my pregnancy by accident not reading the packet thinking they were normal paracetamol and my bubba is fine!
