Medications: This is a decision that should be made with the psychiatrist, the obstetrician & the patient. As a psychiatrist i would recommend a selective serotonin reuptaker inhibitor over a benzodiazapine. Some women may elect to stop use of psychotropic medications but for others the risk of stopping outweighs the benefits.
