I asked her thrice is it safe to consume and she gave me assurance that if consumed once or twice it is perfectly safe. I am 5 months pregnant. little worried. kindly advise.Is it really safe??

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Combiflame contains paracetamol and ibuprofen. Paracetamol is safe during pregnancy but effect of ibuprofen is not clear during pregnancy. It might affect the growing child. Although 1-2 off doses may not affect you or your child. In my opinion it is better to avoid Ibuprofen.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Hi, My wife is 28 months pregnant and was feeling little feverishly and she also had cold due to weather change. Her doc suggested to take Crocin but we didn t have crocin and we thought combiflam is same as crocin so I gave 1 tab combiflam to her. And now someone told me combiflam is harmful in pregnancy. She took this tab two days back and baby movement is normal till now. Pls suggest will everything be fine? And what harm could be happen with combiflam?
