Add this to one more medication that may cause birth defects… There is a study just released with over 100,000 patients which shows that when macrolides (antibiotiocs like erythromycin, azothromycin, and clarithromycin) are used in the first 13 weeks of a pregnancy, may increase birth defects.
Compound this with the thought that most women do not know they are pregnant until they miss 1-2 menstrual periods. So, I urge you to be aware of your menstrual calendar when your physician prescribes you antibiotics.
And, while you are thinking of it, take a prenatal vitamin daily. It’ll help the fetal spinal cord and may make you feel better.
