Planning a pregnancy. How long should you wait to get pregnant after being on clarithromycin? I took 2 biaxin XL pills 500 mg once daily for 10 days.

Possibly: Biaxin (clarithromycin) is pregnancy category c, meaning it may not be safe. Biaxin increased the risk of heart defects and cleft palate, and decreased fetal growth, in pregnant animals. Although it has not been studied in pregnant humans, a healthcare provider may prescribe biaxin to pregnant women if the benefits outweigh the potential risks. Provera (medroxyprogesterone) should be ok. Good luck. ...Read more
