I took in ciprolex tz about a week ago and just found out that i am three weeks pregnant. I was experiencing abdominal pains during the treatment and associated it with the side effects. Now I don't know what will happen to my unborn baby because i am still experiencing mild abdominal pains. What can i do?

Dear Sir,

How best should a breastfeeding child [say 6 months old] be treated if the child becomes ill (weak, watery stool, sweating) if the mother, while on tinidazole, has insusceptibly brestfed the little one?
