First trimester complications of restoril

Patient: I just recently found out i was pregnant and in a 3 week time span itook 2 restoril pills. will this cause abnorlaties if that was all that was taken in the first trimester?

 

 

Doctor: Restoril (Temazepam) is a drug that is used for treating anxiety. Tamezepam is known to cause fetal damage and congenita l malformations when taking in the first trimester. I would advise you to consult your health care provider to rule out any fetal complications from the use of restoril.
