In brief: Tylenol, (acetaminophen)

Tylenol, (acetaminophen) acetminophen, is safe to take when pregnant.
Please be sure to follow the dosing instructions on the package. Do not take more than it recommends. Overdosing on tylenol (acetaminophen) is very dangerous to your liver. Hope you feel better.

In brief: Tylenol (acetaminophen) + Pregnancy

It is a pregnancy category class c, which means there is a possible risk.
Call the ob/gyn first and ask about an alternative and/or if not, the safest dose possible.
