Am 24 wks and have the flu. I also have a super active 17mo to look after and DH can't/won't take the day off to look after him. Phoned doc and she said to take paracetamol to help. Has anyone else taken it during prg? She said it was safe but I just wanted to check. Also did you just take the usual dose? Thanks for your help!
I took the full dose for a few days back in March due to an awful chest and throat infection and this was recommended by the doc. But, and I know this is obvious, make sure you don't exceed the upper daily dose. Hope you feel better soon.
I was prescribed paracetamol a couple of weeks ago when I was discharged from hospital so I am guessing it is fine as long as you follow the guidelines on the instructions and only take the recommended amount.
Yes all medical experts recommend paracetamol it is in fact the only option tghat everyone agrees on! People with spd often have to take it all day every day in irder to move without being in agony. I had flu at start and was also told that the temp etc is much more dangerous than paracetamol.
