Can you take Co-Codamol while pregnant?
Buying codeine should be a last-resort if you are pregnant. Though a doctor may prescribe it, co-codamol contains codeine which can cause issues if taken while pregnant. The risk is that codeine can become very addictive, and if you take codeine shortly before giving birth, the baby will be born addicted to codeine. This means that they will suffer withdrawal symptoms.
What type of pain medication is best taken during pregnancy?
There are a few painkillers that are safe to take while pregnant or breastfeeding, and paracetamol is generally the first choice. Many pregnant and breastfeeding women have taken it without any harmful effects to either the mother or baby. If you consider your pain to be light to mild, consider trying paracetamol before progressing to a co codamol tablet.
Can I take 8/500 co-codamol while pregnant?
8/500 is considered over-the-counter, as you can buy it without prescription from a pharmacy. If you are in pain and you are early in your pregnancy cycle, you can take 8/500mg co codamol over the counter. While babies born to women who have taken codeine do not typically show long-term effects, in the short term your baby can suffer withdrawal symptoms so it is important to avoid taking codeine in the later stage of pregnancy.

Can I take Solpadol while pregnant?
The only strength available is Solpadol 30 500. Solpadol does not come in 8/500 over-the-counter strength. It is unlikely that a doctor would prescribe such a high strength co-codamol as Solpadol in the final stages of pregnancy because of the potential of withdrawal symptoms in the baby.
If you are early in your pregnancy and are in severe pain, your doctor may prescribe Solpadol after weaker-strength alternatives have proven unsuccessful.

Is Codeine good for a toothache while pregnant?
Is co-codamol good for toothache? If you are pregnant, consult with your doctor whether codeine is appropriate for your toothache. In general, you will not want to take codeine during the final stage of pregnancy, as the child may be born with withdrawal symptoms. Adults can find significant relief from severe pain by taking paracetamol and codeine together every 2 hours, alternating with ibuprofen (so each individual drug is only taken at 4 hour intervals). This regimen can usually be stopped after 24-48 hours. Adults, the elderly and children over 12 years: 1 or 2 tablets every 4 to 6 hours.
