User avatar Hello,
No, this would not harm the baby. If I understand this correctly, it is acetaminophen, which is considered safe in pregnancy. You need not worry. If you are alarmed by package inserts which recommend you not use in pregnancy unless the doctor orders it, that is because we do not test drugs on pregnant women and the manufacturer must post that warning and cannot claim safety. It does not mean it is dangerous to the baby.

Best wishes.
