  • Doctors recommend Tylenol a lot during pregnancy just make sure you don't over do it. I've only taken it 4 times during this pregnancy because I am overly paranoid. But I've heard it's more than safe to take while pregnant.

  • My doctor told me it was fine during pregnancy, and I know a lot of other women who also used it. You might want to consult yours, just in case, but it's generally considered one of the safest drugs to take.

  • It's generally safe. Probably the only thing your doctor will allow you to take for pain/fever.

  • Tylenol, yes. Advil, no.

    This always bugs me. I get migraines, and the one thing I've found that works is 4 Advil liquid gels and a nap. Tylenol just doesn't work as well for me.

  • Yes, thats pretty much the only thing you can take for any pain that you are having

  • My doctor told me you can take it - the benefits outweigh the risks. I had constant headaches for most of my pregnancy, but I wouldn't immediately take Tylenol... it was more or less just if I felt I had to, after trying everything else.
