Welcome to ehealthforum,
Your gynecologist/obstetrician will not prescribe you any medication during pregnancy that unless the benefits outweigh the risks. Take the medications as prescribed to increase the AFI (amniotic fluid index), and to improve weight gain in baby. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Take high protein diet. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating gynecologist/obstetrician and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately.
Take care.
