    They say Tylenol is the same as Paracetemol and my OB told me that it was fine to take extra strength Tylenol as long as I didn't take it all the time

    "Normal" paracetamol is 250mg, and you usually take 2 of those. So by taking just 1 of the 500mg ones then it'll be the same :) You'll be fine hun xx

    I asked the chemist what was best to take for before, during and after pregnancy and he said paracetamols. Stick with them and you'll be fine.

    You can take 2 500mg paracetamol up to 4 times a day, this is what is prescribed to me and its totally safe, try not to worry, I hope it settles soon, take care :hugs: XX
