General & Family Physician 's  Response
Azithromycin is a category B drug which means that while there is no evidence of this harming thee child, no controlled studies are available to assess outcomes in pregnant women.
It is given only when the benefit outweighs the risk. Amoxicillin is an antibiotic which is considered safe during pregnancy and I would suggest you speak to your physician about this.
Hope this helps
