I accidentally took Advil! What should I do?


I have a headache. I was on the phone with a friend and reached up on top of my fridge and grabbed a bottle thinking it was Tylenol. I know I sound so stupid that I didn't notice the color or anything, but I took 2. About half an hour later something made me think of it and I realized I took Advil. I know you're not supposed to but i've also heard some doctors tell women it's ok.

Should I be worried?? Should I call my doctor??

I dont think you should be worried if it was a one time thing. I have taken advil before I knew I was pregnant with my other children and everything was fine.

Its not a huge deal but if your feeling guilty and worried, drink LOTS of water and flush your system out.

Wouldn't worry about taking it once. But for next time, maybe put the Advil away where you won't make the same mistake twice.

I love my advil as well, and miss them horribly while pg, cause of my headaches. Tylenol makes my stomach upset... but is the preferred choice of many doctors.

Advil, Aspirin, etc are blood thinners. Repeated use will make your blood thin which will not carry the necessary nutrients to the baby. Some doctors however do prescribe it to certain high risk pregnancies. So don't worry.
