Girls, about Solpadeine. Please ask the pharmacist if you can take it when pregnant or breastfeeding. It has a codeine in it and it totally banned in Australia. So I would double check before taking it. Though its a very good pain killer.
Yes, you can take it when you're breastfeeding if you need serious pain relief (or Nurofen Plus) - not every day for weeks, obviously, but it's what I was recommended to take after my section if I still needed pain relief after I came off the prescription stuff. Given that I had intravenous morphine for the section, I suspect baby's exposure to opiates from the Solpadeine was fairly minimal in comparison.
(also I presume in Australia that codeine is prescription-only, not banned entirely!)
