Flexor: The salt is orphenidrine. The medication is also called Norflex. It is a category C drug and the effects on fetes have not been evaluated . I would suggest go with paracetamol. Should avoid flexor and other medications like brufen in pregnancy.

No: Flexon MR is a combination of Ibuprofen, Paracetamol and Chloroxazone. It is not advisable to take this drug during pregnancy as it is not safe.

No Studies...: There are no studies in animal or human pregnancies guide us in using Flexon during pregnancy. Medications with no data should be avoided unless the benefits of the medication clearly outweigh the risks. Best wishes!
