WORRIED
Aug 21, 2000

DEAR DR. COHEN,

IS IT TRUE THAT IF A PREGNANT WOMAN TAKES ANTIBIOTICS COMBINED WITH ANTI VIRAL DRUGS REJECTION/NATURAL ABORTION IS PROVOKED?

SHOULD A PAUSE BE RECOMMENDED WHILE TAKING ANTIBIOTICS?

THANK YOU FOR YOUR REPLY

WORRIED

Response from Dr. Cohen

DEAR WORRIED -

ABSOLUTELY No info that I know of suggests that antibiotics plus antivirals increases the risk of a miscarriage. So there is no reason at all to suggest that someone stop antivirals while pregnant when also taking antibiotics. You might ask whoever told you this how they heard this -- and track it down -- since whoever is spreading this one might be doing some damage to whoever believes it.

Hope that clarifies.
