Hello Ashima..
tab. Oafuro 500mg is a cefuroxime- which is an antibiotic. It is a second-generation cephalosporin antibiotic used to treat various infections...
Cap. Protera 40mg is a Pantoprazole - proton pump inhibitor (PPI) which is used for the treatment of conditions like heartburn, acid regurgitation, and stomach ulcers... It decreases acid secretion in the stomach while antacids neutralize the acid in the stomach and coat the stomach mucosa...
tab. drotin ds - Drotaverine is used to treat spasm of smooth muscles in organs such as stomach and heart. it is mainly used to relieve painful spasms associated with chronic gastroduodenitis (inflammation of the stomach and the duodenum of the small intestine), gastric and duodenal ulcers, irritable bowel syndrome (disorder of the intestines that leads to cramps in the abdomen) and many more conditions of the stomach and intestine that are associated with painful spasm...
and these med are safe in pregnancy up to the dose prescribed by doctor...
