  • I have never been on it, but your doctor wouldnt put you on it if it wasnt safe and he certainly wouldnt say it was if it had risks. You and your precious baby will be fine!! Congrats on the little one!!

  • A Z-pack is fine during pregnancy. Depending on what kind of infection you have it is safer to take the Antibiotic than to allow continued exposure to your infection. When you can't breath well, neither can the baby.

  • i took the z pack early on in my pregnancy because they thought it would help since i've been sick the whole time didnt do anything to help and my baby is just fine im 36wks now
