Wife took Medikeel lozenge-20 Weeks pregnant

My wife is fairly ignorant of the risks of medicines, and took a Medikeel A lozenge for a sore throat before I could stop her. I read the package insert, and it said that safety had not been established in pregnancy.

Her gynae has since also told her to avoid Medikeel in future.

Could it have affected the fetus, especially the brain?

It would be unlikely that one lozenge would cause any harm.
