    Default Daily Panadol use

    I know that Panadol is safe for use during pregnancy, but my question is, does anyone know if that means it can be taken daily if required? Obviously not for the entire 9 months, but I've been getting really bad headaches everyday for the last week and have taken 2-5 tablets each day. (No more than 2 or 3 when it's really bad in one go).

    Long term daily panadol use, even just 2 or 3 a day as you described over a period of time I think may be harmful for your liver.

    I would seek medical advice

    Hi

    As long as you do not go over the dosge listed on the packet, you should be right, although taking more than 2 at a time is not suggested, something about metabolising the chemicals or something.

    I know that using to much panadol can create problems with the liver and kidneys, but thats quite a bit you would have to take, so i wouldnt worry if i were you.

    If in doubt call the chemist they will be able to give you better info, also ask the doctor if you need to.

    HTH
