Thanks for the query.

Azithral - 500 contains azithromycin which belongs to category B drugs in pregnancy according to FDA.
Means animal studies didn't show any adverse effects on the fetus and there are no sufficient human studies.
So as benefits over-weigh risks here you can take the tablets. Usually three tablets are enough for completion of the course. So you once discuss this with your doctor and follow her advice.
Take care
