Yes: This is a class c drug so there are some possible effects on the fetus. However, if you are on this drug then not taking it while pregnant can cause more problems for the baby. You should never stop this class of medications without taking to you infectious disease doctor first. It is vitally important that you stay on your meds so that you stay healthy and the baby does not become infected.
