There are a few common questions around cold and flu tablets, such as ‘Can you take Ibuprofen with cold and flu tablets?’ or ‘Can you take cold and flu tablets when pregnant?’ We can help. First of all, we recommend checking the ingredients: if your cough, cold or flu medicine already contains ibuprofen or painkillers, don’t take ibuprofen as you could consume more than the maximum safe dose. And secondly, if you’re pregnant, reach out to us or your doctor before you buy. It’s usually best to skip extra medications when you’re pregnant, and instead, try taking a low dose of paracetamol.
