there are some meds which are safer than others - definitely talk to your ob about it - you don't NEED to go unmedicated, if it is best for you to BE medicated ((Hugs))

Your OB will be able to give you a list of all the medications that are safe during pregnancy. I hope you find one that works for you! And Congrats on the pregnancy!

I took Paxil with DS#1, it may be unrelated but he has Autism. I took a small dose of Lexapro with DS#2 and DD and both are healthy.

I was on Abilify and Wellbuterin when I miscarried. OB didn't think the Wellbuterin caused it, but said Ablilify is too new to know if it had caused it.

I am 6 weeks pregnant and off my Effexor and am certainly feeling it.

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.

julie43...I was on zyprexa with my daughter....healthy pregnancy!!
am trying to get preg agaiun and will prob have to stay on it

I'm on fluoxetine(prozac) and zyprexa...I went to a specialist in the city..and even though they are both category C (which basically means nothing has benn prooven either way)..he says the benefits outweight the risks...he even said...pediatrician too..that I cna prob breastfeed on it! I have severe ocd and would prob go insane without it...especially during pregnancy!!
It'll be okay...you'll do great!! I actually have contacted the teratotogen institute of new york...they do research on all this..and they have found nothing harmful
