Cytotec is category X meaning NOT to be taken in pregnancy. If taken in the first trimester it can cause defects of the skull and face.
It can cause a syndrome characterized by fused joints, growth retardation and a condition known as Mšbius syndrome, which is characterised by paralysis of the face.
With dangerous drug exposure in pregnancy, consult should be obtained with a maternal fetal medicine specialist (high risk Dr) and a specialized ultrasound done at 18 weeks of gestation to look for abnormalities.
