When can I take Extra Strength Tylenol????
I am no through the first trimester, with my first pregnancy I had a different doctor and while I didn't like the doctor as much, I still got a lot more information about pregnancy such as what to expect and what medications were safe to take... this time around I've gotten nothing of the sort. So my question is...

When can I take come EXTRA Strength Tylenol?? My headaches are pretty bad and now today I feel like I'm coming down with a cold...  anyone know???

You can take four 500 mg. extra strength tylenols a day. 2 in the morning and 2 at night throughout your whole pregnancy.

My Dr. did told me that was ok because I've been getting headaches everyday!

I'm not too sure if your doc. will agree because all of them are different but they told me it is common for pregnanct headaches and to not exceed 2,000 mg. a day!


Hope this helps!

You can take it now. My Dr told me I could take it for my migraines but it hasn't helped me. Hope it helps you!

Extra strength tylenol is one of the only things us pregnant ladies can take... or you can try calling your doctor and see if they will prescribe you tylenol with caffine. I got those for my headaches last time I was pregnant and they are miracle workers!

Correct, you can take it anytime in the pregnancy, even in the first trimester.  My midwife said that some dr's don't like there patents taking it because there afraid they could "overdose" on the Tylenol, but if you follow what the bottle says you are just fine.
