I am 13 weeks pregnant Breathing was slightly difficult and

Patient

Q: I am 13 weeks pregnant. Breathing was slightly difficult and my obgyn sent me to a pulmonologist. I was diagnosed with gestational wheezing and a slight sinus. I have acid reflux already. The doc has given me azythromycin 250mg(category B and so should not be a problem) along with Methylprednisolone 4mg.Upon reading,i was told that this is a category C steroid and that all the 21 tablets in the strip need to be taken in 6 days. I am highly concerned.Is this advisable at all or should i get a second opinion.I was also given zyrtec(cetrizine 10mg) as a sleep aid and taking prevacid in parallel for my acid reflux.I feel miserable and guilty taking all these drugs while i am only in my 13th week.Please help!
