Brief Answer:
its contraindicated

Detailed Answer:
Hello,


Vasograin tabs are contraindicated in early pregnancy. However 5 tabs per se shouldn't be affecting the foetus unless it would have been regularly used since long for migraine. If there has been no bleeding or any features of missed abortion, you should continue the pregnancy with regular folic acid tab intake. Any chances of anomalies if present can be picked at various levels of ultrasound and if there is any defect then necessary action with regards to termination can be taken then.

Please avoid the user of vasograin tablets subsequently.

Brief Answer:
seems foetus is safe from vasograin effect...as growing well

Detailed Answer:
As she is 16th week pregnant, then i feel that vasograin hasn't had any effect on the foetus as foetus has been growing well.
Moreover the level 2 scan which is due in next 3 weeks now shall rule out any structural defect in the foetus if at all it has occurred in any case.
So presently no real need to be worried.
