Q:

hi all, i am 29 weeks pregnant. I get headache twice in a week.. is it safe taking dolo each time. please suggest



Sonali Shivlani

Dolo or crocin or other paracetamol options do affect the liver and hence it is best avoided. Try other distracting techniques. Maybe a massage a cup of warm tea and even some aroma therapy like lavender oil. Also identify the trigger. At times it could be a food or some other stress ful situation. Many times if you don't eat for a long time or are out in the sun it can trigger a head ache.

Prithvi Balaji

One way to get out of the issue which helped me was drinking lots of water (liquid). Because one reason for headaches is dehydration and that is quite common in pregnancy.
