hello there saril ( ofloxacin ) is category c drug, i wont recommend it in first trimester, and no way just for stomach upset. why imosec ( loperamide for diarrhoea category b can be used in pregnacy but it has simethicone in it category c again.)
razo D ( is rabeprazole) you can use it. it catgory b, fine it is.

so if its a stomach upset you mean just acidity or or acidity plus diarrhoea etc, just take rabeprazole/ famotidine and use some fiber like ispaghol husk to help loose motions you can use metronidazole. stop other crap and kick your doctor in the nuts for me as a compliment for trying to ruin such a crucial phase that is embryogenesis of your baby.
