Antibiotics: In Pregnancy and Lactation

Antibiotics are commonly prescribed during pregnancy. The specific medication must be chosen carefully, however. Some antibiotics are OK to take during pregnancy, while others are not. Safety depends on various factors, including the type of antibiotic, when in your pregnancy you take the antibiotic, how much you take and for how long. Antibiotics generally considered safe during pregnancy: Amoxicillin, Ampicillin, Clindamycin, Erythromycin, Penicillin, Nitrofurantoin. Although there's no direct proof that these antibiotics cause birth defects, additional research is needed. In the meantime, use of these medications is still warranted in some cases.
