Customer Question

My wife is 4.5 months pregnant and is pretty sick with severe congestion. She is ashmatic and has had pneumonia in the past. We live in AL where allergies are really bad. Her doctor prescribed a steroid for 4 days and SMZ/TMP DS 800-160 for 7 days, twice a day. I am concerned about pregnancy warnings with this drug? Thoughts?

in this case I can reassure you. Medication like this could only do harm when used for a longer time. So when it´s not ta***** *****er than one week it´s no reason to worry.

Wish you all the best for further pregnancy, kind regards,
