What medicine is ok to take for pain while pregnant?

I have no clue where the pain is. My friend was asking me what meds were ok to take during the 2nd trimester for pain. I have tried to find out where the pain is but no reply. I thought tyendol was the only thing I could take but it's been 2 years since I was pregnant. I said to call the dr to be sure.

  • I asked when I was just pregnant this spring and they said that Tylenol was fine, but not Advil or Aspirin.

  • tylenol

    they haven't done enough studies on it to say yes or no totally but the recommendation on ibuprofen is that it's somewhat OK during the 2nd trimester but NOT the 3rd or 1st. Some drs will say ibuprofen is OK while others say no. So since they don't know for sure, I'd avoid it and just stick with the tylenol.

  • The pain meds that use acetaminophen are good

  • Unless things have changed in the past 4 years (when my last was born) regular Tylenol was ok to take for pain. I do think she should call her doctor and see what is safe to take.

  • Yup, Tylenol! That's the best thing to take. I know for SEVERE pain issues people who were given stronger meds by their doctors, but in general Tylenol is the thing to take.
