I am sure I have seen stuff on this before but can't remember for sure, has anyone here taken tylenol pm to try getting some sleep? i cant get to sleep at night sometimes til 3 or 4 in the am and need to try getting back to normal
any help would be great thanks
My doctor told me as long as I was pregnant nothing but regular strength tylenol was ok. I suffer from migraines & that is the only thing I can take. Not saying it works though but it's the only thing my doctor will allow.
My Dr. said that Tylenol was fine in pregnancy & so is Benedryl. All Tylenol PM is, is Tylenol with Benedryl. Dipenhydramamine is the active ingredient in Benedyl & Acetaminafin & Dipenhydramamine are the active ingredients in Tylenol PM. I know that Benedryl is ok to take because in my last pregnancy, I broke out in hives & Benedryl was the only thing I could take for the itch. The hospital had also given me an injection of Benedryl when they first broke out.
I'm new to this site, and am 6 months preg. My OB prescribed me Ambien. Tylenol doesnt work for me, but he said not to take anything OTC. Who knows, ever doc has there own opinion. He said ambien was in the "ok to take" (cant think of the correct name right now) category for drugs while preg. I thank god for the ambien cause if it wasnt for that, I would never sleep... I'm up every 2 hours to go to the bathroom. I have an apt. tomorrow, I think I will ask him about it again. Prior to my preg, I had insomnia too and used to take excedrin pm, which is a definate no no.
Hope this helps.
