Hi I am really worried as I had flu and took loads of lemsip maxes for several days I also had several beers in a night out. I have now found out I'm 5 weeks pregnant. How badly have I damaged my unborn.

It's highly unlikely that you have damaged a baby so early. I got very drunk without realising I was pregnant and it was at about 5 weeks, I didn't find out I was pregnant until 8 weeks and I had wine in that time. I made up for it by not touching a drop of alcohol/caffeine or any other banned substances at that time like soft cheeses and peanuts etc until I had finished breast feeding. She was absolutely fine. I think you have to seriously abuse drugs and alcohol for the whole of the pregnancies to harm the baby.

Congratulations, you and your baby will be fine.

Also Lemsip max is only paraceptamol. My GP has me on Codeine 100mg for most of my pregnancy.
