  • not that i know. i normally take four at a time (tylenol is the only thing i can ever take) when i was pregnant i dropped it to either two or three a day, depending on how bad the pain is. but i did that with all three of my kids and they are all healthy. they are 11, 8, and 6
    hope this helps

  • tylenol is considered safe and shouldn't harm your liver or baby when taken as directed. Emphasis on as directed .

  • Nah. It shouldn't hurt anything. I took that when I was pg. My daughters are now 11 and 13. but if you have any doubt about it, talk to your doctor about any questions you have.

  • Tylenol is always what the doctors recommend for pregnant women. Ask your doctor if you're worried, but I was told that was the best pain med to take.
