I was treated for Hpylori and was prescribed prevpac which has amoxcilin and clarithromycin .Is it ok for the fetus? My pregnancy was not detected when I started using these medications.Thank you
Amoxicillin/clarithromycin/lansoprazole (Prevpac) has been assigned to pregnancy category C by the FDA. This means that animal studies have shown adverse effects on the fetus and there are no studies in humans.
Potential benefits of this medicine may outweigh risk and warrant its use during pregnancy.
Talk with your doctor if you have any concerns.
