Too much antibiotics?

I know the docs have a brain on them, but I've had an eye infection since Thursday and in that time I've seen a doc every day. And every day I've gotten shots of a strong antibiotic (rofram or something like that). So today after a total of 5 shots, antibiotic eye drops she also gives me pills and a cream for my eye. I realize that they are hoping this gets better, but I feel like a walking medicine cabinet. Is there such a thing as too much antibiotics?
Btw I'm 18 wks today and asked about how this affects baby, but the response I got was it will be better overall if you get this infection taken care of for both me and passenger on board.

  • You might want to go to a different eye doctor. And you need to call your OBGYN as soon as possible. Every kind of antibiotics will effect the child, and not in a postive way.

    I cant believe that the doctor even gave you this medicine when they know you are pregnant.
    Dont get me wrong, of course you are not a doctor ( i guess), but even YOU should know better than taking this medicine before asking your OBGYN.

  • Well then you better get a new OBGYN.. AFAP.. because this is not alright. Antibiotics are strong chemicals....

    I dont know a single OBGYN that would give this medicine to you.
