Amoxicillin and pregnancy

Is it safe to take amoxicillin during pregnancy. I am 24 weeks. My dentist prescribed it, but it seemed like he had to confer with all of his colleges before writing the prescription. What do think?

I took amoxicillian for a sinus infection when I was about 24 weeks.  I think it's OK.  :)

I had pink eye also...when it rains it pours!  :)

It is safe to take : ) It is a nice mild broad spectrum antibiotic, used for a multitude of reasons. just keep an eye out for yeast growth, seems worse while pg.

very safe. Most Dr.'s and denists are just afraid of pregnant women.

If you are worried about any drug you are taking while a pregnant you can enter it in on this site and it will tell the risk.  Also you can always ask your pharmacist. Good luck and congrads!

BTW di you have an abcess (abscess) or something anf that's why they gave that to you. Just in case there is an infection you can also have dental work done at this time. I had an abcess (abscess) but I need actual oral surgery and they won't do it until after the babies are here because either I need IV sedation or they're going to use so much lidocaine they can't give me that amount while pregnant is what they say. But I think I would rather wait as wisodm teeth are coming out and eating may not be fun and that's all I want to do right now at 36 weeks :)

Maybe try something natural like eating yogurt with a culture in it for a few days.  That usually helps me when I take antibiotics.
