    Hello madam. You should see your Obstetrician, the Doctor you manage your antenatal care. The drugs you are given also depends on the trimester you are in. You can take malarial drugs if you have the infection, it is to prevent it from affecting your baby. Some are just not safe especially in the first trimester. All the best
