Painkillers whilst pregnant

My house doctor recently prescribed Stilpain 2 three times a day when I had Bronchitis. I only took it at night as it made me very drowsy. I am now 31 weeks pregnant and my pharmacist has told me that it could be very harmful and I am not supposed to take it? Please advise asap?

Ideally this should not be used in prregnancy, but the pain problem time is the first 12 weeks of pregnancy.
