Depends on the trimester. It does the most harm during the last trimester, and it is not preferred during pregnancy. At birth it promotes the closure of the ductus arteriosus, which you dont want to have happen prior to birth.

Can to many 800 Motrins make you test positive?

Pregnancy tests test for pregnancy hormones, and there is no medical knowledge to suggest that Ibuprofen (what constitutes Motrin) alters pregnancy test results. However, if you are pregnant, do NOT take any ibuprofen, as it will have teratogenic effects on the fetus/baby. This means that if you take or are taking ibuprofen during your pregnancy, especially during the first trimester, there is increased risk of physical deformities, disfiguration, and other similarly serious problems.

No, ibuprofen is perfectly safe for you and your baby during pregnancy and even afterwards, as long as you follow the directions on the packaging. Think, what does the hospital give babies when they are little and sick? Ibuprofen or Tylenol. Don't overdose! But if you are feeling uncomfortable from cramps or pains ibuprofen is perfectly acceptable. NO, ibuprofen is not safe to be taken during pregnancy.....drs recommend using aceteminophen during pregnancy, and the lowest dose recommended on the label. ibuprofen is typically sold as Motrin or advil, aceteminophen is sold as Tylenol. the reason that ibuprofen isn't recommended is due to the anti-imflammtory ingredients found in that particular drug. ask your dr for other safe alternatives to any medicine you may require during pregnancy Dont listen to the first answer, listen to the second!! Ibuprofen is NOT NOT NOT safe. In recent studies of a small hole being formed in the fetus' heart, a stressor/main cause was the usage of ibuprofen products. ACETOMINOPHEN only!
