    Default Ibuprofen whilst pregnant?

    Was wondering if anyone knew if nurofen or any ibuprofen is safe to take whlst prengnat? Have put my back out settling DS last night, it is so painful I can barely walk and getting in and out of the car is impossible. I am allergic to panadol and can only take nurofen type painkillers but seem to have this feeling am not allowed whilst pregnant.

    I don't think it is safe during pregnancy. Perhaps call the Medicines Line to be sure.

    No it's not recommended for pregnant women.
    Can you have codeine? I'm pretty sure that's safe for pregnant women.

    Panadol is the safest option!

    thanks ladies, I had a thought I couldn't. Can't google from my work computer which is annoying.

    Hven't thought about codiene, not quite sure what is in the paracetamol I am allergic to. Would send DH down the road but the local pharmacy is shut on sundays and he doesn't drive! Only have ibuprofen in the house. Might have to wait out the agony at least another day until I can get to a close pharmacy.

    We are in NZ, not sure if we have a medicines line, bound to, just not aware of what it is.

    Have you tried hot showers or heat packs on your back? I found that to work more than pain killers when I had back issues.

    tried a hot shower, they are working on water mains in our area so pressure was pathetic and it hurt to stand for long.

    DH found the wheat bag so trying that just as we speak. Biggest issue now is trying to get comfortable enough where I can apply it! Feel like such an old lady

    not safe for pregnancy, but is safe for breastfeeding.
