Hi doctor my wife is 8th month pregnant. All of a sudden her nose is bleeding since 4 days yesterday onwards she is feeling like she has a cold nd whenever she blows bloody mucus is coming whole day. When we met gymic she prescribed antibiotic cefpodoxime proxetil 200& tranexamic acid tablets for 5 days. After using this now she is feeling better. But somewhere I have read cefpodoxime is not recommended during pregnancy. Please suggest is it safe to take. I am more worrying about this thanks in advance.

Yes. This is safe. Avoid blowing hard while pregnant.

Hello. Cefpodoxime is a cephalosporin and can be taken in pregnancy if required. Don't worry and continue with the treatment as your doctor suggested.
