Work with doctors: From the medicines you're taking, it sounds like you've been dealing with a serious mental illness, possibly bipolar disorder. Stopping these medicines suddenly would risk relapse of this illness -- not a good idea. Please discuss these issues with your psychiatrist and obstetrician -- they know you. The risk to your baby and you of getting sick is very high, vs the benefit of remaining stable. Read more

Trazodone 100 mg tablet makes you gain weight?

Trazodone 100 mg tablet makes you gain weight?

It certainly can: Trazodone is one of my favorite medications to help sleep. It is nonaddicting and safe for most people. But any sedating medication can give you the "munchies": craving sweets and carbohydrates. If you're not craving carbs, the trazodone is probably not the problem. Eat properly: no matter what, avoid sweets (especially sweetened drinks), junk food, cookies, candy, & simple starches like potatoes. Read more
