In brief: Depends

For many antidepressants it is not necessary to stop while trying to get pregnant, but may want to wean when you find out you are pregnant.
It depends greatly on which type though. That being said, if you are feeling good and have been on the medicine for a very long period of time and you are leading a generally healthy lifestyle, your doctor may want to try to wean you off of them. Ask dr!
