  • If you have any concerns about prescription medication the best person to talk to is the pharmacist. They know more about medication then even your doctor. The only antibiotics I have been prescribed through out my pregnancy is cephalexin. So I would suggest calling your pharmacist and asking them about it. To be safer.

  • I had to take emycin when pregnant with my son who is now 20. I can't take penicillin. He turned out just fine. Don't worry mama.

  • With my first baby i got a kidney infection and was on two different antibiotics for a while, then one the rest of my pregnancy (like 4 months or so). Baby is now a healthy 4 year old!

  • if your dr gave it to you then im sure its safe they know whats safe to take while pregnant and whats not. I got several uti while pregnant and was given a couple different types of antibiotics and my children are healthy with no problems.

  • A doctor will tell you to trust in him and his staff, that people can sometimes unintentionally create turmoil for you with their comments since they don't understand your particular condition.
    What I mean is maybe there are other things he took into consideration when he decided to prescribe you this.

  • Double check that with your doctor or a pharmacist.
