I started taking it 3 days back and still have sometime to go before the medication ends. This morning I have got loose motions and already visited the loo thrice and my day has just begun. Can I reduce the medication from 3 times to 2 times due to this? My doc is not available today. Please help!! I really don't know what to do. To add to my miseries I also have a bad cold! Let me know if anyone has any information please. Thanks.
Nayha; when possible have your OBGYN doctor prescribe any medication when you are pregnant but this antibiotic is in the pregnancy rating of B so the doctor knows that it should not hurt your or the baby. Make sure you take it as directed and take it until it is gone. Did the doctor know that you were or are pregnant? that is also one of the first things you want to tell them. Here is a copy of the safety rating they use on animals and know that it will not affect a fetus .safest way to do this. so try not to worry. chuck1957 here is what I copied and pasted. (((Pregnancy Category
Category B -
Animal reproduction studies have failed to demonstrate a risk to the fetus and there are no adequate and well-controlled studies in pregnant women. ******* the rating B is what they try to stay in if they have to prescribe for a pregnant woman. Any other questions call your pharmacist. have a good weekend and i hope you feel better. congratulations.
