What extent?: This product is made up of tylenol (acetaminophen) and Diphenhydramine (benadryl) and each is safe during pregnancy. This means limited and occasional use however as being wisest and most careful for the growing fetus. Some may tell you of a link between Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and cleft lip; studies showed this to be false. Still caution with any medicine in pregnancy is best; much remains unknown.
