Im new to this board but not JM. I have had depression to some degree or another for years and most recently have been told I have anxiety( which make a lot of sense now ).
I was on different medications growing up but stopped when we started TTC almost 2 years ago. I had 2 losses and got very depressed again. I was put on Wellbutrin. I didnt want a med that would give me sexual side effects or gain weight( which the other ones had). This medication worked wonders until about a month ago. My husband had a diabetic seziure in his sleep and i found him. He is ok now but it was a very tramatic experience. Since then i havent felt right. We increased my meds but it didnt help. I think now its more the anxiety that is the problem.
Any suggestions on meds for anxiety or for a combo depression/anxiety that are safe to take in pregnancy. The wellbutrin is a catagory B which is ok. Most of the other meds are a Catagory c.
I would prefer it to not make me gain weight but i know that many do.
We are still ttc and will soon be doing more MA and possibly IUI. I want be in the right state of mind and be on a combo of drugs that will help me but is safe.
Any help would be greatly appriciated.
