I am 28 weeks today and insomnia has kicked in full force!  I have contractions pretty regular and have since about 20 weeks so Im always sore and now im not sleeping at night.  My doctor told me I could take 2 tylenol PM a day for the remainder of the 8 weeks that I have tell my c-section and the baby would be fine but when I look things up on line it seems like its a 50/50 if it is safe.  Any of you ladies have any idea or have taken it?

Im not sure but i have heard of pregnant women taking it. I went into labor with my son and was contracting every two to three minutes but they were not strong enough contractions to be considered active labor.Very uncomfortable! They gave me two ambien to take when I got home to help me get some sleep and that is some strong stuff. I would think its okay..

It's safe. It's essentially Tylenol mixed with a low dose of benadryl.

I think if your doctor says its fine then you should be okay.

I havent read any other replies, so idkwhat they've said BUT - I have had every one of my OB's tell me that Tylenol PM is ok to take. Reason being is that Tylenol PM is just Tylenol with Benadryl in it and both are perfectly safe during oregnancy. My OB now and my last have told me that benadryl is perfectly fine and can actually help with a lot of different pregnancy symptoms. Of course, speak with your own doctor about it, you may have some underlying condition where it's not ok, or wharever...but this is my experience. Good luck!

It's fine - I had terrible insomnia - but my problem was it gave me TERRIBLE restless legs, it was worse than the insomnia!
