The aim of this research was to determine the relation between paracetamol used during pregnancy and preeclampsia in RS X Yogyakarta. The research was an analytical epidemiology with case control study design. Data were obtained from medical record and interview.

Preeclampsia patients were taking paracetamol during pregnancy (71.8%), aged 30-40 years (84.6%), and had preeclampsia family history (28.2) than non preeclampsia patient. Chi-square test showed the relation between paracetamol used (p=0.010, OR= 3.46 (95%CI= 1.30 – 9.22), dose a day (p=0.010, OR= 3.18 (95%CI= 1.12 – 9.06), duration of paracetamol used (p=0.005, OR= 7.75 (95%CI= 1.60 – 37.53), and used within first trimester (p=0.878, OR= 0.91 (95%CI= 0.26 – 3.12) to preeclampsia.
