Personally - I would not recommend Xanax during pregnancy. I believe it's a Class D med (or X - I don't remember) which means it's been proven to affect the baby.

However, with that said I do know some Doctor's "ok" it for very very rare use during pregnancy - as long as you are carefully watched/monitored.

I would be very open and honest about your meds with your OB. You'd be surprised how may Antidepressants are now considered "safe" during pregnancy with very low/little risk of long term effects.

I took a very low dose of Zoloft during my pregnancy and although my daughter was 4 weeks early (they assured me it wasn't from the Zoloft) - she was perfectly healthy and has hit every milestone thus far.

Good luck
