    I have suffered from migraines my whole life and took panadeine after first trimester when I needed but tried to use it sparingly.

    I was told by my OB and also a drugs consultant working at my hospital that taking paracetamol with codeine in it was safe during pregnancy. I also asked the chemist himself when buying them and he said it was fine also.

    Just be careful OP, I read you said you were going to start taking your magnesium sups now but just remember that magnesium may already be present in your pregnancy multivitamin (if you're taking one) and long term use of magnesium sups can be harmful as well. I take it as a supplement (I get migraines and leg muscle night cramps) but stop after a couple of weeks and take a break before resuming.

    If you've cut out coffee I would look at reintroducing it, I couldn't stomach coffee when I was pregnant with DD and was getting awful migraines. I forced myself to drink it and they stopped. My GP advised caffeine can help with migraines, and is fine as long as you don't have more than 1 or 2 a day (depending on the strength if the coffee)

    Actually DP was drinking coffee to help with her migraines too. Her GP said that cutting it out might have triggered some of them. Strange.

    Yes I agree. I had migraines during pregnancy and caffeine twice a day helped keep them at bay.

    I have taken magnesium 500 mg per day and low dose of endep -25 mg. It's no fun. Hope you find something that works!

    It's not unusual to get headaches when you not pregnant, May be it could be the nature's way of preparing you to be the mother of a teenager. Paracetamol, however it is considered safe for occasional use.

    I came across the article Headache During Pregnancy. I thought this could useful for you and it could help you out by taking safer alternatives.

    visit the site
    whattoexpect and search for the article with the tile.
