Cortal is made by GalaxoSmithKline is actually three different preparations to reduce pain and fever:

1. Cortal For Adults tab; Contains acetylsalicylic acid 500 mg, caffeine 30 mg (aspirin and caffeine)

2. Cortal For Children tab; Contains 80 mg acetaminophen (paracetamol)

3. Cortal Ibuprofen tab; Contains ibuprofen

None of these will cause miscarriage or prevent or end pregnancy.

Overdosage with Cortal can cause delayed labor, liver and heart damage for your baby, and liver damage to you. There are rumors that "Cortal ®" will cause miscarriage or end pregnancy. These rumors are untrue.

Cortal should not be used in the third trimester of pregnancy. As with all NSAIDs it can cause the PDA (patent ductus arteriosus) to closed in the fetus.
