You should try some non-medicinal interventions!! Your baby's health is @ stake! Gargle with warm salt water.. Drink decaf hot tea w/ a little lemon.. Get more rest.. Don't eat or drink to close to laying down to combat nausea.. Try Vitamin C drops/lozenges. There's lots of things to do!!

It really depends on what has caused your problems, since Erythromycin is only effective at treating, or preventing bacterial infections. Thus, if your illness is caused by a virus, such as a cold, or flu, it will not help, and taking it inappropriately could result in someone developing antibiotic resistance bacteria.

The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, headache, dry mouth, diarrhea, and non-allergic skin rash.

Ulana, your post is appreciated, but you should never tell someone not take a medication as prescribed by their doctor, whether they are pregnant, or not. (And she states the it was prescribed while she was pregnant, but doesn't state that she is still pregnant, at the time she was asking this question.) It just isn't worth taking such risks, while pregnant, since an infection can be fatal to both the mother and baby. While there are other things that the NIH lists as possibly boosting immunity, they should not be taken, without a doctor's approval.

Is there anything I can help with?
