  • Thats a question for your OB... call him/her and ask what you can take. They know you and the baby the best.

  • Call you doctor and tell him/her that plain tylenol is not working

  • When i had my tooth pulled with my last pregnancy they gave me tylenol 3 and yes its mostly tylenol but it works. it does take the edge off. No you cant take those other ones i just had this convo with my doc yesterday. And they really dont like to give you pain meds when your PG.

  • tylenol doesnt do anything for me either. i was going to get my wisdoms pulled but then i found out i was pregnant and they decided not to do it. i know im gonna want to take the heavy pain meds like vikoden so im just waiting until after im not pregnant or breastfeeding anymore. call ur doctor and ask what they suggest

  • tylenol 3 has codeine in it, which is a narcotic.
