    Panadol is fine to take during pregnancy, unless your dr says otherwise. Headaches are very common during pregnancy, so make sure you're getting plenty of rest and drinking lots of water.

    As the PP said. Panadol is fine. I also find that a class of ICE cold Coke helps too.

    Panadol is fine as long as you stick within the recommended daily dose.

    My Dr also said that for severe pain, it is ok to take Panadeine (ie Paracetamol & Codeine) but I haven't been brave enough.

    the only things you cant take are nurofen and similar. Cant remember why, bu they're a big no-no.

    I was on Panadeine Forte for a few days when i had back probs, and there's also a panadeine 15 out now, which is between panadeine and panadeine forte.

    Yep...Panadol is fine.

    I know Danni has written about her headache cure a few times...which alot of people have found incredibly helpful...

    I think what it is (and correct me if I'm wrong Danni)...

    get a small towel...wet it...and then put it in the microwave for a few minutes (I think!)...it should be pretty hot (but not hot enough to burn you) then wrap it around the back of your neck...

    Good luck!

    i found panadol to be just fine. Funny thing is, i found them to be far more effective when i was preg, then before hand.

    Is it OK to take panadol

    Hi all

    I have a terrible headache and have already taken 2 panadol at about 2.30 this morning. I still have the headache but wondered if I could take more panadol?

    TIA

    Just so you know, I was told that Panadol is fine every four hours. The Ob said to me there are women out there that have severe arthritis and things like that where they have to come off all pain relieving drugs when pg and instead take 2 panadol every 4 hours for their whole pg and it does not affect the baby at all.

    Definately safe just make sure you follow the directions on the pack (a max of 2 tabs per 4 hours not exceeding more than 8 tablets in 24 hrs).

    headaches

    Hi

    I am 15 weeks and have been getting the worst headaches every day for the past 2 weeks. My ob said its ok to take panadol so i have been taking a couple a day. Is it normal to be getting headaches and how long do they last for? My sinuses are also quite blocked up.

    Hey Sara, sorry to hear you're having bad headaches When I was pregnant a few of us in the buddies group seemed to have the same problem. It lasted for the early "teen" weeks and stopped around 18 weeks from what I remember.

    Yes, thats what happened to me and they were terrible, too. Each headache could last over 24hrs, but as Sarah said, they seemed to die down at around the 20 week mark

    I also had these,,, and they were a nightmare,,, even if i had to wake up in the middle of the night for the loo,, my head was still pounding. As the other girls have said though,, they died out sometime after the 20 weeks mark too. My doctor said it was to do with the surges of hormones, and that panadol was fine
