Hi girls - does anyone know if its safe to take strepsils while you are pregnant?
I've had a throat infection since last week, i went to the doc and he said that there isnt really anything that can be done, he did say to gargle paracetemol and water but i start coughing at night so the strepsils help.
i've only taken 2 as i'm not sure if i can take them...just wondering if anyone has / is taken them whilst prgnant
My doc told me i could take strepsils - but only once you reach the econd trimester and to follow the max allowances as per the pack exactly... he also mentioned I might be better just sticking to soothers, but again I think these are only in the second trimester....
I was told that I couldn't have them. All I could have was regular panadol or stuff like Halls.
Given what littlemissrachy was told you would probably be better just sticking with the Halls Soothers.....
it's funny how different doctors give conflicting advice...
It's so hard to know what you can and can't take - i had the strepsil swallowed before it even occured to me that perhaps i shouldnt take it - then last night i couldnt get a minute sleep with my cough so i took another one
I presume taking 2 strepsils isnt going to harm the baby in any way - be different if i took 2 packs!
looks like i will just have to stick to the honey and water
i had a really bad throat infection and wanted to take the strpsils with the anasthetic (sp) in them and the pharmacist told me i wasnt allowed
