Radiologist Dr. Radha Narayanan's  Response
Norflox is a antibiotic given usually to treat uti and or GI infections.Befelac is used to restore gi flora after antibiotic treatment.Norfloxacin has been reported to rapidly cross the blood-placenta and blood-milk barrier, and is extensively distributed into the fetal tissues. For this reason norfloxacin and other fluoroquinolones are contraindicated during pregnancy due to the risk of spontaneous abortions and birth defects.
