Tylenol, (acetaminophen) massage.: Usually, plain tylenol (acetaminophen) is the first choice for management of back pain during pregnancy and t#3 with Codeine the Next Choice . Consult your ob/gyn to make sure it is safe for you to take tylenol (acetaminophen). Do not use any other NSAID like advil/ibuprofen/motrin during pregnancy. Also, getting a chair with good back support, laying in various positions, prenatal massage and back exercises may also help you!
