I left hospital on day 3 and wasn't given anything - was just told to take paracetamol if required. I think everyone is different but if it isn't agreeing with you then stop it and see how you go. What is it you are taking?

The codeine and ibuprofen? The codeine I took for just a few days, they made the baby ridiculously drowsy even though the mW said it wouldn't. The ibuprofen I took for several days, but after thee first few days I only took them when I actually had pain and not around the clock to prevent pain starting iyswim.

Co-codomol for a week, then another codeine based medication for another week, can't remember what it was called but it was a smaller dose. After that i took ibuprofen and paracetamol if I overdid things and was in pain.
I was very anaemic which made me light headed and dizzy, could it be that rather than the medication?

Paracetamol and ibuprofen religiously whilst in hospital. Now just as and when needed.

I was taking paracetamol and nurofen religiously but yesterday I stopped the nurofen , still taking the paracetamol prob every 6 hours or when needed. I do feel better after stopping the nurofen.
