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. There are risks associated with both being depressed in pregnancy, and with using antidepressants in pregnancy -- but these need to be weighed in each individual woman's case. In the meantime, here's some helpful info: http://tinyurl. Com/l57wsxn. ...Read more

Coffee and pregnancy: No more than one small cup (no extra large cups of coffee) or can of products with caffeine per day is recommended, (That's a total, so you'll need to avoid multiple sources of caffeine on the same day.) In addition, avoid consuming energy drinks and other products that contain large amounts of caffeine. More than 200mg Caffeine a day could cause low wight at birth and decrease blood flow to ...Read more

For constipation?: If you are asking about suppositories, the answer is yes.

It's not absorbed by the body and is gentler than many anti-contstipation medications. Make sure to drink a lot of water if you are having problems with constipation. Drink until your pee is clear/white, no yellow. ...Read more
