Pregnant and antibiotics
Refer to my email on 30/1.

I'm 19 weeks pregnant and on the next medication for bladder infection: Urispas 200mg (3 x pd), Augmaxcil 375mg (3 x pd).
This I used for 5 days and because the infection was there for the last 3 times I went for my check-ups the doctor also gave me Macrodantin 100 mg - which I should take when the Augmaxcil is finished - this is for another month.

I Also have a terrible cold at the moment and would like to know what I can use for that. Please let met know if this is al safe for my baby?

Augmaxcil and Macrodantin are fine. Urispas is one of the drugs where the effects in pregnancy are unclear. I cannot find any additional information on this.
For the cold you can use Panado for pain and fever, Benylin for cough and Iliadin spray for a blocked nose.

Best wishes
