Youi should not take either of these. You can take Panado and Benylin syrup if you are coughing.

I am around 8 weeks pregnant and I jus got the flu for about 2 days now. I'm starting to feel miserable and really need to take something for it. What is the safest medication to take at this stage?

As far as I know med-lemon has aspirin, and aspirin should be avoided during pregnancy. rather mix honey and lemon it worked for me

I am 20 weeks pregnant, with my second child and the thing that I find works best for Cold and Flu, panado, Vitamin C chewable Tablets, plenty of Orange Juice, Water, a humidifier, vicks on your chest and nose, and plenty of sleep. It really works, give it a shot. I personally do not believe in taking anything other than panado when pregnant

you shouldn't take either of the two. the best option is that new panado stuff, it's like med lemon but it's panado, if that makes sense. anyway it's awful, but will make you feel better. congrats by the way.

When I was pregnant, my gynae said that the only thing that I could take was med lemon. No corenza C.
