Hey Mommas!

I need someone to tell me it's going to be okay.. and what I should do.

I'm taking 75MG Effexor and I just found out i'm almost 3 weeks pregnant...

What should I do - and what have I already done (negative) to my unborn???

Does anyone know what Effexor does to a fetus?

Should I stop taking Effexor right away? Should I "ween" myself off? Goto a lower Dose? Cold Turkey?

Please let me know what you have expirienced... what dangers there are...

Thank you so much for replying!!!

<3 Lil Monkey

I'm honestly not to sure what to tell you. First thing I would do is Call your Dr ASAP! Tell them the situation that you are preggo and on the meds....and that you need to know if it's safe and what to do if it's not. they should schdule you an appt and take it from there. Always communicate with your Dr before stopping the meds.
