Tylenol Extra Strength.

I feel like garbage, sore throat, achy sore body/joints, pounding ears/head, soooo I had my hubby go get me Tylenol, but in this world today there is no REGULAR tylenol, so he bought a generic version [still acetaminophen], just 'top care' instead of Tylenol. I took 2, so now I'm reading it and notice it's Extra Strength. Should I be concerned? Or is that ok? There are no warnings on the bottle towards pregnant women, I compared it to Tylenol Flu and there IS a warning, not to be taken by pregnant women. But I'm just wondering, is it ok?

  • I take two extra strength tylenol when I need them and I'm 36 weeks =]

    You'll be just fine. The max amount you can take in one day is 4000mg, two extra strength is only 1000mg. You're okay ^.^
