Thanks for query.
If all these medicines have stopped before conceiving then there will not be any harm to the fetus.But if the drugs were continued during early pregnancy then there are chances of getting fetal congenital anomalies,growth retardation,macrosomia,fetal adrenal suppression,etc.
Pregnancy safety and category of melanocyl has not been mentioned anywhere.
Hence we can predict it's effect on fetus.

Get a scan done for fetal congenital malformations.

Hope this answers your query.
Thank you.
