  • U can take the lowest dose of the regular. It think it's 375mg or something. U aren't suppsed to take anything stronger.

  • I take two of the 500mg when I need it. I'm perfectly healthy and so is my baby. Tylenol is one of the only PERFECTLY SAFE drugs to take while you're pregnant. As long as you're not taking over 4000mg a day you'll be fine.

  • caitxrawks is right. Tylenol even ex-strength is fine. Took it w/ all my boys and this one too. i'm 34wks and baby and I are perfectly safe. I take 2. Tylenol disappoints me tho, it rarely takes all my pain away - and sometimes it doesn't even take the edge off.

  • Agree with the last 2 posters. My Doc said I could take 500mg of Tylenol when I needed it, but along with Mommyof5boys543 (who is crazy for having 5 boys btw!!) Tylenol just doesn't do it for me and I wished I could have taken something different in my pregnancy.

  • I always took 2 of the extra strength when I was pregnant. Never hurt anything. But I only took it when needed it. I usually waited until I knew my pain wasn't going away.
