Why Pregnant Women Have Been Warned On Use Of Paracetamol

Children are gifts from God to parents.

However,according to Nation Africa on their tweeter account, the Pharmaceutical Society of Kenya (PSK) conducted a research to fund out medical practices during pregnancy.

Unfortunately, paracetamal is the most used and prescribed painkiller. They said,

“Since it is difficult to determine effects on the foetus before marketing new drugs due to ethical reasons, most drugs are contraindicated in pregnancy. Prenatal exposure to paracetamol may alter foetal development, increasing the risks of neuro-developmental, reproductive and urogenital disorders."

What do you think? Should pregnant women avoid using the drugs? What should we do as mothers to protect our unborn children? Should they reasearch the medicine before marketing? Thanks for your time.
