Patient: My wife is in her third trimester and experiencing flu symptoms. Is it safe for her to take panadol multi-symptom or dph elixir?
Doctor: It is better to treat symptoms of flu according to the symptom rather than taking a multi-ingredient drug during pregnan cy. One can use paracetamol for aches and pains or a sinex nasal spray for a runny nose.You can consult your family physician for the drugs that are safe to take during pregnancy. Hope this helps.
