I had a good experience w/ Seroquel XR w/ my last pregnancy (my 3rd), and it was closely monitored by my psychiatrist & OBGYN. This med worked for me, but just b/c it worked for me, doesn't mean this is the best drug to take for all persons. For me, the positives outweighed the negatives. My son was born healthy & he was my biggest baby. All vaginal, no complications in delivery.
The best thing to do is talk to a psychologist, go over the risks & benefits & decide what is best for you & your baby. Your OBGYN will most likely say "if you're psychologist of meds tells you it's okay, then I'm okay with the medication(s)".... at least that is what he told me.
Another thing, I LOVE, LOVE this website, it allows you to enter in an Rx or OTC drug & tells you the grade level of safety in being on a medication when you're expecting or nursing. It's helped me & I hope it helps you. Drugs in Pregnancy and Breastfeeding : SafeFetus.com Regardless, please talk the details out w/ your OBGYN & if you dont' have a doc of meds (aka, psychologist) get one! Your PCP isn't qualified in that area and either is your OBGYN, you have to find a doc that works w/ patients when they're preggers or wanting to get preggers and or breastfeeding. Otherwise, you wont get the quality of care that you truly need.
