I'm looking for opinions on antidepressants during pregnancy. Thoughts?

Antidepressants: I agree with dr. Patterson that this is a complicated discussion, and one that should happen between you, your ob-gyn physician, and your psychiatrist.

Also, ask president obama (http://www.Whitehouse.Gov/ondcp/precursor-chemicals). ...Read more
