I have serious cough and sore throat. Im having two paracetamol a day. I presume i can only have paracetamol but how many can i have a day?

You can have the normal dose, i.e 8 500mg tabs a day (2 tabs at least 4 hours apart from previous dose) but be very careful with taking any other cold medications. Beechams etc are no no's due to decongestants. Obviously being pregnant you will want to take as little as possible so try orange and honey, moaning as much as possible etc.... Seriously though, honey has lots of anti-bacterial properties. But do take some paracetamol if it helps. Hope you feel better soon x
