Hello Sareen,

Thanks for posting your query.

Roxithromycin is an antibiotic belonging to the Macrolide group of drugs.

It is listed as a category-B drug and so it is safe in pregnancy.

As for URTI (take it.

But a better and safer class of drugs are cephalosporins and/or penicillins. You can ask your doctor for a specific drug.

Hope I have answered your query. Please accept this answer if you don't have any further query.

Wishing you a speedy recovery.
