    Who's taken it sence bein prenant? I'm so scared to take any kind of medication so I haven't taken anything except the stuff my doctor perscribed for my swollen gland. Now that I have these horrible pains from getting sliced open today I think I'm going to need something to help me sleep because this pain is just not good... :/

    I havent taken it since being pregnant but I have actually heard that its okay just stay away from ibprofuren or aspirin which are super strong. But I know me so I would probably call my doc before taking it just for reassurance. feel better soon :flower:

    My doctor said that taking Tylenol is fine. She said that if it's the extra strength to only take one. It's completely fine though-- because of the pre-eclampsia I get headaches now, & they've told me to specifically take Tylenol. If it were bad, my hospital would not have told me to take it! So far, my headaches haven't gotten bad enough to actually require medicine though.
    If you're in pain, you really should take one. I don't take medications unless prescribed (I did this even before I was pregnant)... but if I'd just been cut open in my 'whooo-haaaa' I'd take some pain relief, too!

    I was told tylenol and the extra strength tylenol is okay. I needed to take something because I fell asleep wrong and woke up with a stiff neck, and my doctor said it was okay. the bottle sees take two but I just took one. Im sure you will be fine.

    Skye, you poor thing! I read your update, I'm sorry!! Don't freak yourself out, Tylenol is okay to take. I'm sure Azaria wouldn't want his mommy suffering anyway. I hope you feel better in time for prom! :flower:

    It will be fine! Don't worry! As long as you aren't going to make a habit of pill-popping, it's ok!

    Extra strength tylenol should only be 500mg's a piece. You can take up to 1000mg's so it should be fine. Tylenol is like the only pain killer on the list of medication us pregos can take. I take it when I need. :hugs:
