Okay. I know I haven't posted in forever, but good to see so many new people. Just some background info. I have depression and anxiety and was taking Cymbalta and Xanax when I got pregnant. I stopped everything, sure I could make it through nine months without the meds. Well. this weekend was really bad. I spent two days in bed crying and convinced myself that my husband didn't care about me and that no one loved me. It got really bad. I ended up fighting with my husband and hitting him and bit him. I've never been violent before, but I was Sunday. Luckily he's a lot stronger than me cuz I didn't actually hurt him, but it got really bad. So I ended up asking my OBGYN about medication. I've been nasty to everyone and I really hate that. And the worse is when I yell at my seven year old for no good reason. So I realized that I can't make it the last three months (I'm due end of November)... 13 weeks to go and I caved. So I asked my OB about Prozac and she said that is the least safe??? Everything I read says otherwise. So she offered me Zoloft or Celexa. I didn't do well on Zoloft before, so I went with Celexa... So I started today at 20 mg. Luckily I got in to see my Psychiatrist next week (can't believe it, but I think they squeezed me in cuz I'm prego. in any case, thank God!) so I figured I'll take it until then and see what he says. While I'm nervous about the side effects, I just can't do it anymore. I'm aggitated and agressive, sad, and lonely. I'm starting to get paranoid as well, which I never had before. When hubby stops at the store to buy something I think maybe he's seeing someone else, when people whisper, I think it's about me. It's gotten pretty bad very quick. I didn't even notice I was sliding until I was there. Story of my life I guess... sigh... I just started seeing a new therapist as well, so I'm hoping that will help. I just feel really overwhelmed right now and like I can't handle all the responsibilities of working, being a mom already and being a wife. My house is a mess and I can't seem to find the energy to do anything. I just want to be a good mom to my daughter and to be a good mom to the baby. sigh.... I hope I'm doing the right thing with the Celexa... In any case, I just needed to talk it out. Thanks for listening. And if anyone has any experience with pregnancy and Celexa, please let me know.... Thanks again
