    Default Medication safe in pregnancy

    Hi, my second post for the day, but we (my husband and I) have only just found out I am pregnant in the last few days! We had a doctor appointment today for blood tests but I forgot to ask what medications are safe in pregnancy. Mainly:
    - restivit - insomnia and morning sickness
    - daystrength mersyndol
    - night strength mersyndol
    - panadeine forte

    I have always suffered bad migrains and just want to know what I can and can't take to manage them! I dont take these medications all the time but when I only have to. I have read ibuprofen is a no no, but does anyone know if any of the above are safe? I have read a lot that restivit/similar are used with B6 for morning sickness? I am planning on talking to my doctor again as soon as I can, but if anyone knows anything that would be great also!

    Hi, I know that restivit and panadeine forte are definitely safe during pregnancy as I have a 5 month old and had to take them during my pregnancy for the same reasons

    Thanks for your replies, just want to be careful! Does anyone know an Australian website for safe drugs during pregnancy?

    Sorry to crash this section. You should find what you're looking for on the TGA website http://www.tga.gov.au/hp/medicines-pregnancy.htm
