My doctor told me to only take it when absolutly necessary and to take as little as poss.
if can take it then why did he tell me this?

I thought it was totally safe. My doc has given me 200 and I've been taking 2 every 4 hours for 2 weeks

To err on the side of caution.

Paracetamol is OK to use in PG, but if you can get away without using do, don't take it.

maybe he is unsure of guidelines and was just covering his own back

It is safe. But nothing in life is 'totaly' safe. Not even breathing

Your doc will not have given it you unless you needed it princess.

It is safe - I was told to take 1000mg to help manage the pain of an ear infection, but they said they wouldn't recommend antibiotics because it might jeopardise the pg. Agree better to avoid unless necessary, but is definitely okay to take.

I was told that paracetomol is ok but I wouldn't go mad, If you have a tension headache- Try 4head menthol stick thingie-It is magic !!!
