Hi,

Well I was told by my obgyn that Tylenol was safe to take during pregnancy but you can always check with your doc.

Also, since you live in my area The Hospital for Sick Children have a hotline called "MotherRisk" and it's specifically for pregnant women to call with questions regarding taking any sort of medication, haircolouring, sunscreen, etc, etc.
Call the operator/information for the number. Sorry, I don't have the number anymore.

I just posted a similar question on another board.

They told me DEFINITELY NO WAY! to Ibuprofin (which Advil is)

About Aspirin, it is apparently pretty bad for baby and should be avoided altogether if possible. However, one gal was taking baby aspirin, but only because her doctor was treating her with it for another condition.

They recommended to me that I use Tylenol for my headaches. That has been deemed safe for use during pregnancy. I don't know if it includes ALL types/strengths of tylenol or not though. Anybody know?

Check out my post on meds during pregnancy. Hope it helps. Advil isn't too good for the baby....

My Obgyn said No way to Advil. I have the worst headachs ( I couldn't even get out of bed and Tylonol did nothing) I asked my Obgyn about them and he gave me a medication that was safe and it worked.




Good luck
