Do i need to stop taking my anti-depressant while i’m pregnant? I take an anti-depressant for anxiety. Will i need to stop taking this once i get pregnant?

Many : Many women who suffer from anxiety find themselves in a bind when they become pregnant. Some medications used to treat anxiety, such as some serotonin uptake inhibitors (ssris) and benzodiazepines, are questionably safe in pregnancy, especially in the first trimester, so we recommend that those who don’t really need these anxiety medications refrain from taking them during pregnancy if possible. Some anti-depressants have better safety profiles than others, so you might ask your doctor whether yours is one of the safer ones. However, if your anxiety is significantly reducing your quality of life, it may be worth the potential risk of taking medication. Each case is individualized, and only you and your doctor can make the decision that is right for you. If you’ve decided to stop your medications during pregnancy, be creative about healing your anxiety in other ways. Try meditation, guided imagery, expressing yourself creatively, seeking support from friends, practicing prenatal yoga, taking a warm bath scented with aromatherapy oils like lavender, attending religious services, or keeping a journal. ...Read more
