    Very Complex

    I believe there are currently conflicting rules.: There are is not yet enough evidence to show what the best medication is. It is best to keep close contact with the NHS website for update to information.

    This issue is too new - watch this space.: There is no clear data, only anecdotal evidence so far. It would seem paracetamol may be safer than ibuprofen.

    I believe there are currently conflicting rules.: There seems to be a debate about paracetamol and ibuprofen with questions over ibuprofen....
