Ideally, you should avoid taking medicines when you're pregnant, especially during the first 3 months. Conditions, such as colds or minor aches, often don't need to be treated with medicines. If you feel you need to take medicines when you're pregnant, talk to your doctor first, or get advice from your pharmacy. If you're taking any medicine when you're pregnant, you should use the lowest effective dose for the shortest possible time. If the recommended dose doesn't control your symptoms or you're often in pain, get more advice from your doctor.
