A 23-year-old female asked:
Do you doctors know many patients who have been on 20mg citalopram throughout pregnancy and had perfectly healthy babies?

Yes: Yes, I have but that doesn't mean it is without risks. Use of psychotropic medications during pregnancy takes careful consideration as well as careful colaboration between the psychiatrist & obstetricain.
