is it safe for a woman who is six months pregnatn to take Tylenol Back Pain?

Tylenol Extra Strenght is an excellent choice.  Personnally, if it doesn’t work well enough and you have spasms, I suggest you ask your physician for a prescription of cyclobenzaprine which has been widely used in pregnancy but there are less studies with methocarbamol, thé ingrédient in Tylenol Back Pain.  Lots of people used it in first semester without complications, but I feel better recommending cyclobenzaprine 

The pharmacist is solely responsible for the answer.
