Patient :Hi Doctor, I am 11 weeks pregnant,i am suffering from fever of 102C, cold, cough and mild throat pain since saturday morning.. My husband was suffering with same symptoms including headache since last week. He got infected from his office colleague.
I consulted my gynec on saturday evening, she prescribed calpol 500mg 3 times a day for 5 days and cepodem 200mg 2 times a day for 5 days.
I have read in few blogs that cepodem causes birth defect to unborn baby and its harmful, am so worried now. Please suggest me if i can stop using cepodem as my fever has gone, and i have cold and cough now.
