  • yes you can. and if you don't have pain but need help sleeping, take benedryl. (that's the active ingerdient in the PM meds that makes you sleepy)

    that's what my midwife told me to do anyways

  • I heard its ok to take it. I never have. but a friend of mine did while she was pregnant to help her sleep at night. She now has a health baby girl.

  • I would always ask your doctor or midwife. My midwife had me taking Sominex for nausea in my 1st trimester (and it worked!). I just always made sure of any medications before taking them. I would imagine Tylenol PM would be okay, seeing as Tylenol is okay and the sleep med, but I would just call your doctor to make sure.

  • Yes, I'm 18 wks and I have trouble sleeping he is sitting low and I have a lot of aches and pains at night, can't get comfortable at all and I can't sleep constantly tossing so I my doc told me I could. I have only been getting 3 and 4 hrs of sleep since I was 10 wks along and she told me to take some tylenol pm or benedryl and if I'm nauseous before I go to bed only take my phenegren cause it will make you sleepy too.

  • I have been having the worst sinus and allergy issues for two days and finally broke down with a killer headache and took 2 tylenol and 1 benadryl (half a dose) I have slept like a baby all day and was told that it was safe. I always wait until I can't handle it any longer before I take any meds.....even the safe ones!
