I take tylenol pm sometimes to help me sleep. My doc recommended it. She said anything thats tylenol is fine. But all docs say different things. Check in with your doc to see what he/she says.

that is good to know. I have an appt with her (my Dr.) on friday so I will ask but I wanted to see if any of you had the same problem. When I first found out I was pregnant they gave me a paper with the do's and don'ts of med but it says nothing about the pm they should fix that. I know we can't take anything with antahistomene (i think I spelt that wrong) but the pm doesnot have that it has acetaminophen in it. I thank you all for your advice.

I see you're from oregon so this would be long distance, but toronto's hospital for sick kids has a great hotline called motherisk. They'll tell you anything that's bad for baby. If you look up the hospital online, they'll connect you for sure.
