Thanks for your query.

Taxim O contains Cefixime which is a category B medicine. Category B medicine are ones which can be given safely in pregnancy.

Where as Ascoril do have some side effects on pregnancy, it may have to be taken on when there is absolute necessity.

Instead you can take steam inhalations with Eucalyptus in it.

Hope, I answered your query.

Please let me know if there are any other concerns.
