Caption: Painkiller drug in pregnancy. Pregnant woman holds a tablet of paracetamol in one hand while clutching the box in the other. Paracetamol is an analgesic (painkiller) which is available over the counter. If taken in the correct dosage it can provide relief from the problem of backache or other pain in pregnancy. However, any drug taken in pregnancy can pass from the mother through the placenta to the baby. Although paracetamol is not proven to cause harm to the developing baby, it is recommended that a pregnant woman should not take any drug without first consulting her doctor.
