  • go to the ER if you want stronger meds. I wouldn't take more tylenol though.

  • Hon, you can't take that much tylenal while your pregnant. You can only have two regular strength capsuls.

  • Call your OB first and see if an ER visit is needed.

  • when i was 3 months preggo i used to get the worst headaches- i had 2 weeks go by that seemed like i had an endless headache- never going away... but i would take a hot shower and let the water run down my face- that would help relax the pain just a bit

  • caffein is going to make it worse too. and no you are not supposed to take ibuprofren or advil or anything like that while you are pregnant. Only tylenol. It is safe to take 2 extra strength tylenol but not often. I get migraines really bad. I would def talk to my ob about it if the problem persists.

  • I would go to the doctor especially if the headache does not alleviate with Tylenol. High blood pressure can cause a headache among other things.
