Amoxicillin is an antibiotic used to treat bacterial infections. Amoxicillin is quite safe for pregnant women as long as indicated. Ambroxol is a cough medicine that is used to thin the phlegm. In general, ambroxol can be used in pregnant women if the benefits are greater than the risks to the fetus. The methylprednisolone is a corticosteroid that is used to suppress inflammation and reduce allergy symptoms. The drug methylprednisolone should only be given if the benefits outweigh the risks.
If you have previously told the doctor about your condition who is pregnant, then you can take the medicine according to the doctor's recommendation. But if the doctor does not know about your pregnancy, I suggest that you discuss again with the doctor who treats you and tell him that you are pregnant.
To help reduce coughing during pregnancy, you should increase your water, avoid foods and drinks that are too sweet, cold, or oily, avoid cigarette smoke, and get enough rest.
Hope it helps you,
