Yes: The ingredients paracetamol and acetominophen are category B which means probably safe. You should always talk to your IB before taking any medication during your pregnancy. Paracetamol does cross the placenta but had not been shown to cause fetal harm. I wish you the best with your pregnancy and a healthy child. ...Read more
Limited options : Nothing is 100% safe in pregnancy. Doctors usually recommend Tylenol (acetaminophen) as directed on the bottle. Most will tell you to avoid NSAIDs (ibuprofen, Aleve, Advil).

Can i take colchicine and ibuprofen (for pericardial effusion) with my regular meds, which are Zantac daily and occasional Valtrex (valacyclovir) for fever blisters?
Drug interactions: The only problen i see is that you are on zantac (ranitidine) presumably for gastritis/gerd. Ibuprophen can certainly worsen these symptoms. Make sure you use ibuprophen on a full stomach and avoid any alcohol. If you have any abdominal pain, stop the ibuprophen immediately. ...Read more
Debilitating migraines, 6 weeks pregnant, taking fioricet (acetaminophen butalbital and caffeine) daily. Fioricet (acetaminophen butalbital and caffeine) or hydrocodone during pregnancy, which has less effect on embryo and fetus?
Not advise either: Some obstetricians feel that hydrocodone is relatively safe during pregnancy, but in my opinion, best to avoid if possible. Would not recommend use of Fioricet (acetaminophen butalbital and caffeine) in most patients with migraine, especially pregnancy, as it is in the barbiturate family, and has habituation risk. Have found that breathing 100% oxygen as needed is useful and safe. As pregnancy proceeds your headaches should lessen. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Best discuss concern: with your OB who must weigh benefits and risks for you and your baby of any medication prescribed during pregnancy. Antihistamines are contraindicated in the first trimester and risk beyond that is uncertain. If necessary Vistaril is considered a good choice and it is recommended to drink ample water to overcome possible side effects. Alert OB to increased movement. Best regards for good health. ...Read more
