I had a rotten stinking cold when I was around 8 weeks. I had read somewhere you couldnt take ANY pain relief and I was suffering quite badly.
I called 111 for advice and was told I could take paracetamol but not ibruprofen and under no circumstances to take lemsips. They said to take as much paracetamol as needed to ease the pain but the least dose at the same time - So if I found 1 tablet helped but was needed every 4 hours then fine. This was better than 2 every 4 hours. They said that lemsips contain all sorts of anti-inflammatories, caffeiene etc so best to avoid.
