Detailed Answer:

Hello,

The first three (1st, 2nd, and 3rd) medicines are safe but 4th Deflazacort may cause side effects to the baby in the long run, safe for 3-5 days.

I hope this answers your query.

In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.

Wishing you good health.
