  • Its fine. I used to do that all the time because the liqugels are more effective. One extra strenth is less than two regular strength.

  • No, you can take up to 4000 mg of tylenol in a 24-hour period. Don't the extra strength ones have 500 mg per pill? You'll be fine. I have the extra strength ones and I take two at a time, probably once every other day. :D

  • tylenol is okay during pregnancy. You can even take Vicoden which has the same drug as tylenol in it as well as a narcotic. No biggie its totally okay, BUT no ibuprophen or aspirin!
