I'm 20 weeks pregnant and my doctor prescribed me oflox oz ... And skip multivitamin for one week ...is it safe to do so ???

Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa plz tell

You are prescribed medications for what ?? Any thing specific....please elaborate ..tagging an expert

Describe if you are suffering from cold and flu or if you are having skin infection I would like to see your reports before we confirm overskeping the multivitamins

I was having loose stools from past few weeks ...she said sometime iron causes side effects and to stop them for one week with 3 days course of oflox oz

And all my reports are normal

If previous you are taking iron tablets and you did not face any kind of diarrhoea or loose motion that is absolutely ok to continue the iron medication what is the iron medication were given recently a month ago and you developed the stomach infection then you will need to ask alternative to the iron medication you are taking so doctor will advise you to take an injection if hemoglobin is very low
