Some medicines can harm the developing baby. As a rule ,only take medicines recommended by a health worker or doctor. (If a health worker is going to prescribe a medicine, and you think that you might be pregnant, tell him/her so.) You can take acetaminophen (paracetamol) or antacids once in a while if you need them.

Vitamin, folic acid and iron pills are often helpful and do no harm when taken in the right dosage.
