    As Kate has mentioned Panadol is fine to take while pregnant but stay away from asprin.

    Yep panadol is fine to take and apparently panadiene is too but I would try the panadol first and see how you go. Good luck I hope it goes soon.

    Default headaches

    I suffer from really bad tension headaches and have done for years. I stopped taking Nurofen Plus at the start of 2005 when we started trying to fall preganant. I was concerned about how I would cope with a headache without my supply of Nurofen Plus.I was struck down with a tension headache a few weeks ago and after phoning my doctor was told I could safely take up to 6 panadols in a 24 hour period without any harm but with a big glass of water. Two panodols and half an hour later the headache was gone. It is amazing that I survived 2005 without any headaches and then when I did get one, it took as little as two panadols. Says alot for Nurofen Plus...seems that were contributing to them! \/
