I am... 10mg 1x daily. Doc isn't thrilled with this particular anti-depressant over some other ones that have had more studies done... but in my case it is the only thing that works and the risk of depression/suicidal tendencies is a much higher risk for me than taking the med.

I take 20 mg of Fluoxetine (generic prozac), and it has helped with my anxiety.

I take 50mgs of Zoloft & it helps a lot.

My OB said Zoloft & Prozac are generally the "safest" med to take while pregnant.
