Answer

Fever should be managed with antipyretics (preferably, acetaminophen) and nausea and vomiting with antiemetics. Most antiemetics can be used for adverse effects caused by antibiotics, but doxylamine, Emetrol (Wellspring, Sarasota, FL; pregnancy class A), dimenhydrinate, and metoclopramide (pregnancy class B) are preferred.
