Please seek advise from your doc or midwife but I know it's not safe to use during pregnancy. Only paracetamol is safe.

It Is safe to use but only by the guidance of your doctor, and only for short periods. I gave my doctor a ring when I had a tooth problem and he phoned me back at the end of surgery and asked me a couple of questions first. I also think It also depends on where you are in your pregnancy. Sorry to hear you are suffering

I got prescribed co-codamol when I had pack pain. But on the leaflet it says do not take if pregnant before consulting your doctor, so I wouldnt like to give advice. I havent taken any of my prescription co-codamol yet. I just dont feel right doing it.

It is PERFECTLY safe in pregnancy.

But do call your mw before you take it to ensure that it is suitable for YOU. There are reasons some women cant have it but it is not dangerous if there are no health issues with you or your pregnancy xx

My midwife told me to take co-codamol for my back pain. I do know if you try to buy it over the counter at the chemist and say it's for you and your pregnant they will not sell it to you so I end up getting my husband to go in and get it for me which makes me feel like some kind of crazy drug addict hiding outside!!
