Is it safe to use acetaminophen during pregnancy?

By Mary Sharman, edHelperBaby

           Is it safe to use acetaminophen during pregnancy?

       Acetaminophen (Tylenol) is safe, but be careful not to take more than the amount recommended on the label. If you take too much, it can cause liver failure, and in smaller cases pregnant women who overdosed on acetaminophen had babies with birth defects. Stay away from ibuprofen and other aspirin-like anti-inflammatories , though, because these drugs can reduce your amniotic fluid and thin your blood, which could make it harder to stop a hemorrhage during labor.
