Re: Quick question about taking an antibiotic

I wanted to ask the pharmacist that I work with about this before I posted to make sure I wasn't wrong... anyways, we both agree that you and a potential baby would be fine if you were to conceive while taking this antibiotic. There are MANY drugs that I work with that I no longer can handle due to being pregnant, but I was pregnant for several weeks before I even knew, so I and my baby were exposed to those drugs. While exposure isn't the same as ingesting, it is still a *risk* (albeit very slim) with my job. People take MUCH worse drugs before they realize that they are pregnant and the outcomes are generally excellent (providing they stop). You can always contact your pharmacist and ask some more questions (I would call them instead of your dr since they handle drugs all the time and know way more than the dr would).

Re: Quick question about taking an antibiotic

Hi everyone,
I was wondering if any of you already mothers or mothers to be have been in a similar situation as me. I JUST found out I was pregnant yesterday and while I want to be excited I am worried because I was taking Doxycycline for a UTI that was diagnosed on Thursday. I stopped taking the medicine immediately after finding out I am pregnant, but I fear something may happen since I was on it for a few days. My Dr switched me to a medicine called Keflex for 10 days. I hate the thought of being on medication so early in the pregnancy even though I'm sure the Keflex is safe. Please let me know any input you have, thank you!!
