Hello,
Augmentin is a category B drug and usually safe in pregnancy. Its not known to have any risk in animal trials. Normally it hasnt shown an negative effects on fetus but a category B drug means that adequate human trials data is not available to come to a conclusion. Its often given in pregnancy. But you need to let your doctor know about it. Try taking steam inhalation and saline gargles first.
