welcome to HealthcareMagic
Normally you should not take any sort of medication in first trimester and if need arises you should consult your doctor before taking medicine through out pregnancy and should not take it your self.The high dose you took may harm the baby in first 3 months but since you are above that please consult your Gynaecologist and discuss the issue she will be the better person to tell you.
