Yes: Paromomycin is a medication used to treat intestinal parasites. It is classified as pregnancy class c which means that either animal studies show a problem or studies have not been done to determine if it is safe or not. It should not be used during pregnancy. It is probably safe for women who are breastfeeding.
Dr. James Ferguson

Generally OK: As a category c drug it causes some problems in animal studies during fetal development but none in has been found in existing human studies. It is not absorbed systemically so it is not passed into the breast milk in any significant amount.

Yes: If you are asking whether or not you can take vitamins while pregnant or breastfeeding then the answer is yes. It is recommended that pregnant women take a multivitamin while pregnant for the Folic Acid and iron. Any adult multivitamin or two flintstones a day is more than sufficient. You should not take more than the recommended dose however. You can develop toxicities if you take too much.
