is taking medicine that is not prescribe can lead of having baby with down syndrome?

I was able to take anti-vertigo medication during my first month of pregnancy. I didn't know I was pregnant that month. I told that to my Ob-gyne and she assured me that it would not have much effect on the baby since I was just the first month of pregnancy. But I was worried because I took that medicine for a week. after all, all the medicine I buy I need to provide a prescription before I buy it from a pharmacist and been diagnosed of having hypergastric pain and bleed 'til now. I'm 23rd weeks pregnant today. πŸ˜” #1stimemom

Down syndrome po is a genetic disorder. Trust your ob since wala naman daw epekto kay baby yung meds na tinake mo.. Don't think too much of it, maiistress kalang which nakakasama yun baby. God bless!
