Hi Candy. As you can see, the board is conflicted. I would go with the doctor's advice, but if you read my post "the zoloft verdict", there was a CLEAR warning about 3rd trimester safety on my patient info packet this month. I'm not sure if it applies to all SSRIs though.
Hi Candy! I'm just a stranger and I don't know your situation, but i just thought I would respond to your question. Are you currently pregnant, and if so is there any way you can go without these meds until the birth? If it were me, I would probably try to do without it until then. I 'm sure that it would not be easy, but it might be the best option.
I was on wellbutrin my entire pregnancy. my dr said it was one of the safest antidepressants during pg, and i was never worried about it affecting my baby. it might not be in your best interest to go without medication!! take your dr's advice. kup =)
