It seems from the history that you are having flu and cough for which you have used ampiclox and multivitamin.
You want to know any effect of ampiclox and multivitamin on baby if by chance you are pregnant.
Amoiclox is an antibiotic and usually it doesnot cause any serious side effect.
Similarly multivitamins are not known to cause any ill effects.

Hence no need to worry.

Thank you
