A 34-year-old female asked:
is children's tylenol syrup (has acetaminophen 160mg) safe to use in pregnant for sore throat and ache instead of tylenol extra strength tabs.

Yes.: Two teaspoons of the children's tylenol (acetaminophen) are equivalent to one regular strength tylenol (acetaminophen) pill. Tylenol (acetaminophen) is pregnancy category b, which means that it's regarded as safe to use during pregnancy.
