    Hey.. Just curious...

    My doctor prescribed me cocodomal for strong back and tooth pain, but the pharmacist seemed pretty worried about me taking them. I've been taking 2 a day at most, but sometimes go a few days without any. The side effect I've read about is that the baby could come out addicted/have withdrawal symptoms, so I was just wondering if any of you ladies took this, and how much, and if you noticed any effects when your baby was born?

    Sorry! Too many questions! xxx

    I take it and have all through my pregnancy. My consultant said that babies do not become addicted as it can be given in labour as a pain killer. It can make the babe sleepy if it makes you sleepy but if you have been having it a while then baby will be used to it. xxxx

    They gave me 2 at the hospital in early labour, made me so sick after but then I don't really take painkillers that often so was probably rather than the pills tbh
