Unknown...: Without knowing exactly what you ingested/'drank' i cannot answer your post except to say this...Unless your ob/gyn tells you that you can use this medication i would not take it. Always discuss any medications you are taking or planning on taking with your ob!

Midol PM is safe: Midol pm contains Acetaminophen (tylenol) and Diphenhydramine citrate (benadryl) as the active ingredients. Both of these drugs are considered safe for use during pregnancy when used in the manufacturer's recommended doses.

Category B: Midol pm is category b. Category a means definitively no problems during pregnancy. Category b the there is no proven bad effect in humans. So most likely won't be a problem but we don't know about the other medications. Also the amount of exposure ( number of pills and how many days) and the dosis could be an issue.
