Symptoms:  Coughing , chest infection
Doctor

A:   Hello.
Thanks for the query.

If your concern is primarily regarding the excretion of clarithromycin tablets before you conceive, then it is 72 hrs after the last dosage ie. by 9th march, the complete medication should be metabolized. Though it's a relatively safe medicine in pregnancy, a category C drug, but it shouldn't be used in early first trimester. You can safely complete the course of antibiotics and can plan the pregnancy in the ovulation days.

Regards
