Amoxicillin for pregnant women

Common Questions and Answers about Amoxicillin for pregnant women


Avatar f tn My doctor put me on amoxicillin for 7 days because of small infection. Is it okay to be taking this while I'm pregnant.?
Avatar n tn Animal reproduction studies have failed to demonstrate a risk to the fetus and there are no adequate and well-controlled studies in pregnant women OR Animal studies which have shown an adverse effect, but adequate and well-controlled studies in pregnant women have failed to demonstrate a risk to the fetus in any trimester. The antibiotic is so much safer than the infection. a UTI is quite common in pregnancy and your doctor would not prescribe something to you that was not safe.
914672 tn?1243089324 My man paniced about the well being of the baby and insisted to take me to the hospital, the ER doctor (obviously I don't know him) priscribed me amoxicillin for my throat infection (now that i think about it I would of managed with tylenol). He said it was PRETTY safe during pregnancy. Not convincing. So before i took the pill I asked the nurse if it was 100% safe and she said "Yes, it's 100% safe.
Avatar n tn Anyway, to the question, the only antibiotic I am carrying is Amoxicillin 500mg tabs, and have enough for 11 days of treatment at 500mg tid (34 500mg tabs). Is this likely to cure a Chlamydia infection? From reading studies online, I see that penicillin’s are not effective against Chlamydia, but equally Amoxicillin is sometimes prescribed in pregnant women.
Avatar n tn I've seen some pregnant women fill that at the pharmacy I work at, but it's always best to run it by your ob first. It may be worse to let the infection go on than it is to treat it. I know that there are some medications that you can safely take, but if you let something like an infection go on it can get worse and make you and your baby sick. Hope you feel better soon.
Avatar n tn However, there have been some reports by pill users who became pregnant while taking antibiotics. While the risk is very low, we encourage women to use condoms for the duration of their antibiotic prescription and for the following 7 days.
Avatar n tn I was prescribed amoxicillin and I have asked my dr. and they said it was totally safe. I am 18 weeks pregnant and I was prescribed amoxicillin for a sinus infection. It is safe!!!!
177988 tn?1266802499 its perfectly safe and is a class A drug. (class A is the safest for pregnant women).
203342 tn?1328740807 Also with the fever and tylenol, tylenol is consider the safest drug for pregnant women and if the fever goes over 101 or 102 than that can cause problems for the baby as well, good luck hope she gets better!!
Avatar n tn She is on the pill but has been on strong antibiotics 500mg (amoxicillin) for about 2 weeks leading up to that point. How safe do you think we are in regards to pregnancy? I understand that any time you have sex, you take the chance of pregnancy but just wanted to know people's thoughts under these specific circumstances? Do you think the chances are good/bad etc?
Avatar f tn Also women are usually 4-8 weeks pregnant before they have any sign of pregnancy and becides missing a period it would be hard to tell any other way.
Avatar n tn Knows your pregnant they prescribe meds that are safe during pregnancy and they usually only prescribe to pregnant women when it's necessary. As being sick or having a fever etc. Can also harm your growing baby.
Avatar f tn (after 1week of sex) please heeeeelp. And does Amoxicillin can really stop from getting pregnant? If it does, how many Amoxicillin and what specific hour should I take it? PLEASE HELP. I am still 18yrs old.
Avatar f tn I'm so aggravated because there's really nothing pregnant women can take to heal this . Is anyone else going thru the same thing?
Avatar n tn I read that there can be complications later in pregnancy and even birth defects with pregnant women who had UTIs in their 1st trimester. Could this put me at risk or does this refer to women who are left with untreated UTIs? It is a bit confusing. I figured that if I am treating this early and being diligent about my antibiotics that this risk does not pertain to me. Should I go back to my GP in a week or two for a repeat C&S or wait till my first prenatal visit? Thanks for you time.
Avatar m tn Was she on 500 mg 3x a day for 7 days? If not, then she isn't cured. Is she pregnant? If she was on that dose, you all are probably ok, but I would definitely go back for a retest in a month or so to make sure its gone since Amox isn't the first line of treatment. Also, if you haven't figured out how it entered your relationship (did someone have another partner, did one of you come into the relationship with it, etc), you need to make sure everyone who needs to be has been treated.
Avatar f tn They then prescribed me some more amoxicillin for ten days and that didn't work. Now I am waiting for them to return my call to find out what to do next. I'm not sure if this has anything to do with it but when I was five years old I was diagnosed with primary peritinitis and almost died. I'm now wondering if I have had GBS my whole life. I've attempted to try taking garlic pills and I have tried to take an Epsom salt bath.
Avatar n tn Fewer than one woman out of every 100 women who use the patch will become pregnant with perfect use.** The patch may be less effective for women who weigh more than 198 pounds. Certain medicines and herbs may make the patch less effective. These include the antibiotic rifampin. Other antibiotics do not make the patch less effective.
Avatar n tn You could be pregnant, so you need to stop taking the BC until you know for sure. Don't take any meds without knowing if they are safe for women who are/may be pregnant. You can take a pregnancy test when you expect your next period! If you need assistance or a free test, check out and see if there is one in your area (I'm a volunteer at my local one). We give free preg. tests and everything is confidential.
Avatar n tn I went to see my doctor today and from the cultures done last time finally I found out I have strep B, the doctor was very understanding and has now given me a course of penacilin and 2 tablets to avoid getting a yeast infection - 1 to take before the penacilin and 1 to take at the end of the course. I too am trying to research on the net but keep finding info for pregnant women.. I am 27 and definitely NOT pregnant.

Avatar n tn I did find this, and its for pregnant women - Amoxicillin Amoxicillin belongs to a group of antibiotics called pencillins. Amoxicillin is a recommended treatment of Chlamydia infection during pregnancy by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. However, it is not the best antibiotic for eradication of Chlamydia in other categories of people. Augmentin is amoxicillin clavulanate, so its similar. Have you been diagnosed with chlamydia?
Avatar n tn I took azithromycin and it did not cure it.
Avatar f tn For the past year, I have been on antibiotics constantly and within 24 hours of them being out of my system, the horrible sinus headaches, fatigue and post-nasal drip, sometimes with coughing, begins again. I have been through my general physician, rounds of allergy testing with an allergist/immunologist, ENTs, two sinus surgeries, tonsils and adenoids removed, CT scans, MRI's, cultures of my sinuses, multiple blood tests and quite a lot of time, money and pain.
Avatar f tn Amoxicillin is the right thing for a pregnant woman with Lyme. You cannot take Doxycycline when pregnant. I have heard many good stories of kids who got Lyme in utero who are doing great with antibiotics. Treatment makes all the difference. Planning to do the cord blood test is very wise. But if the baby tests negative, there is still a chance of infection. If s/he tests positive, then s/he will need amoxicillin. I have no idea for how long...are you aware of Dr. Jones in Connecticut?
1820473 tn?1344984363 Yeast infections are super common in women. I get em whenever I take medicines for UTI's only--I hate em. You can call your doctor for different medicines that you can use. There are also OTC things that you can use to test to see if it is a yeast infection or not.
Avatar f tn I had a baby September the 1st 2014 and just found out I am pregnant already again I am only around 5 weeks and since I had my last baby I have been having to go once a week to the ER for a shot of torodal and stadol n phenorgen for horrible migraines also was taking fiorcets twice daily will the baby be ok?
