from what i've read it can cause birth defects and miscarriages but so long as it has been taken in a small dose. And you have stopped taking it you should be fine. But I'd still talk to your doctor to be on the safe side.

should be fine just that some of it has paracetamol in it in small doses shouldn't be too bad. Just wouldn't do it anymore.
