SSRI's in pregnancy: It is always best to limit serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI's) in pregnancy, since the final word on effects in pregnancy is not yet established. There are other medications which may reduce the frequency of "panic attacks" or the severity of the attacks. Ask your ob provider to recommend alternative meds for this.
