Hi;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Nitrofur SR is probably Nitrofurantoin which is a specific antibiotic used in case of urinary infections.It is safe in pregnancy and can be used for urine infections during pregnancy.It has no side effects on the mother or the baby so if it has been prescribed by your doctor you can take it as advised.
Thanks
