The doctor should have informed you about the risks of the medication to you and the child if there are any. Generally when a physican perscribes a medications they have determined the benefits to outweigh the risks.

 

I, quite honestly, don't know what the answer is but I do know that if you go to a pharmacy you should be able to request a consult with pharmacist.
