FDA has categorized this drug as Category C: It means either studies in animals have revealed adverse effects on the foetus (teratogenic or embryocidal or other) and there are no controlled studies in women or studies in women and animals are not available. This Drug should be given only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk to the foetus.
As per my knowledge it is less likely to affect the fetus, but i suggest you to stop this drug and consult your doctor for examination.
