Avoid

Detailed Answer:
Hi there,
Welcome to HCM,

Nicip contains nimesulide with paracetamol. Nimesulide is not recommended in pregnancy, so do not take this drug.

Moreover fever in pregnancy should not be self treated, it could not be very safe for the mother and baby. The cause of fever needs to be looked into by a doctor.

Please see a doctor immediately.

Hope this helps.
Regards.
