Can i take celexa (citalopram) while pregnant?

Can i take celexa (citalopram) while pregnant?

Therapy, poss. meds: It's generally best to avoid all meds when pregnant. So psychotherapy is the 1st choice for depression or anxiety. But it's better to take antidepressants, usually ssris like celexa, (citalopram) than to stay clinically depressed while pregnant. Depression itself can harm your unborn baby, so the risks must be weighed. Talk to your doctor. See: http://www.Mayoclinic.Com/health/antidepressants/dn00007. ...Read more

Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more

Can i take lumiday while also taking celexa (citalopram)?

Can i take lumiday while also taking celexa (citalopram)?

No.: Lumiday includes st. John's wort and a precursor of serotonin, both of which you should not take in combination with citalopram. Please speak to your treating physician regarding the effectiveness of your current treatment regimen. I wonder as you are thinking about taking lumiday if something doesn't need to be done to better treat your depression.. ...Read more

Overdosed on celexa (citalopram) while pregnant?

A suicide attempt?: Are we talking about intentional od? If so, i'm assuming you're talking to therapist or psychiatrist about it. A single blast of Celexa (citalopram) on a developing fetus is probably not anything to worry about in terms of fetal abnormalities. ...Read more

Is there any vitamins i cant take while taking effexor (venlafaxine) and seroquel?

Is there any vitamins i cant take while taking effexor (venlafaxine) and seroquel?

Interactions: Assuming you are taking "normal" levels of vitamins, I wasn't able to find any potential interactions between vitamins and either effexor (venlafaxine) or seroquel. Just to be sure - I would not start a vitamin regimen or stop one if you are taking these 2 meds. I might suggest NOT taking them together but there wasn't any interactions I could find. Obviously if something happens stop the vitamins. ...Read more

SSRI's and pregnancy: How severe was your depression? Have you received other treatments effective for depression like CBT? How long have you been on the citalopram? Are you willing to expose the neonate to risk (not substantial likely but real including birth defects, serotonin discontinuation reaction at birth, possible emotional and psychological long-term problems)? Any history of postpartum depression? ...Read more

Benzos are Dangerous: No. Why would you have two drugs of the same class? Does your prescribing physician know you are on all of this medication? The goal is to find a way to prevent anxiety. Benzos do not cure, treat or prevent anxiety. They calm you down; they are sedating? And they are extremely addictive. ...Read more

Thinking of trying to get pregnant. I take Prozac (fluoxetine) for depression. What are the effects of taking Prozac (fluoxetine) while pregnant on my unborn baby?

Prozac (fluoxetine) ; pregnancy: Prozac (fluoxetine) has been studied extensively in pregnancy.

If I am taking Zoloft (sertraline) and trazodone is it safe to take naproxen?

If I am taking Zoloft (sertraline) and trazodone is it safe to take naproxen?

Usually yes: While both Zoloft (sertraline) and naproxen can cause bleeding, Zoloft (sertraline) by increasing serotonin in platelets, which are essential for blood to clot, and naproxen by causing irritation of stomach lining and thereby increasing the risk of bleeding ulcers, most patients taking Zoloft (sertraline) and other serotonin antidepressants (SSRIs) can take naproxen without adverse effects. ...Read more

Been taking zoloft (sertraline) 100mg recently started thinking girlfriend left me for good. Also take donezepil, should zoloft (sertraline) be switched?

Been taking zoloft (sertraline) 100mg recently started thinking girlfriend left me for good.  Also take donezepil, should zoloft (sertraline) be switched?

Donezepezil + Zoloft (sertraline): I assume that the physician who prescribed the donezepil did not know you were on Zoloft (sertraline)? These drugs could interact leading to an increased effect of donepezil. This may or may not be OK for you. My advice to you is to inform both doctors that you are on both drugs and ask if it's OK or whether you should adjust one of the doses or even change the Zoloft (sertraline) to an alternate antidepressant. ...Read more

Pregnancy and psych.: Pregnancy and psychiatric illnesses do happen together. Generally, maternal psychiatric illness is not good for a pregnant woman and definitely is bad for the baby after delivery. That means a woman with such a condition should first consult with her psychiatrist, her primary care doctor, and her Ob-Gyn doctor BEFORE embarking on the pregnancy journey. Pre-plan everything. Meds are important. ...Read more
