  • bronchitis can turn ugly and into a million bad things. You need to be infection free so your baby can be too. Risk outweighs benefit.

  • Like hibbingmom said...in that case the benefit outweighs the risk. If you do not take it, you and the baby could be serious danger. Your doctor knows you are pregnant right? and he prescribed it anyway.

  • I had to take amoxicillan for strep throat and my pregnancy seems fine. Sometimes, antibiotics are just necessary.

  • When i had bronchitis with my 3rs son i took the ZPack..same thing you are on and everyything was fine. I was also given cough med because i could not stop coughing once i started unless i had the cough med and it made me nerveious to take it because it had codine in it, but my OB said it was fine to take it.

  • if your unhealthy baby is at risk i took antibiotics a lot and was on pain killers from dental work the entire time too.. everything will be ok.
