Strep throat and meds
Tue, 11-15-2011 - 12:22pm

I woke up yesterday feeling like I was swallowing fire ants and decided to go to the Urgent Care when hubby got home. Turns out I do have strep and a sinus infection. The doctor gave me the Z pack, and loratabs, which I thought was strange. Is it safe to take the pain meds while pregnant?

Hmm, no idea, but I know I've never seen a doctor prescribe a pregnant woman loratabs.

Ask your OB doctor, in the mean time, I would stick to my home remedies to keep the infection and inflammation at bay.

Hope you get better soon! Must be terrible, it's been years since I suffered from it :(

No idea actually. I would say skip it or double check with your OB/MW to make sure. Hope you feel better, strep is the worst.
