Hello,
Thanks for the query.

R cinex is a combination of isoniazid and rifampicin.This drug may have several side effects but,usually isnt contra indicated in pregnancy.
But you should consult your physician when you can stop the drug.
But since this drug is hepato toxic,you need to be monitored carefully.
