Is 50mg of seroquel (quetiapine) and 50 mg of trazadone daily safe to take in pregnancy? What are the risks to the baby if I need to take this?

In brief: No-Not safe

Seroquel (quetiapine) is a class C drug and has been known to cause harm to the fetus.
Trazedone also is not safe, is a class C drug, and may cause harm. They should be used only if the benefits outweigh the possible harm. They are not safe, and risks are clearly present for birth defects, miscarriages, and for Trazedone, the drug can pass to the newborn through breast milk.

http://www.drugs.com/pregnancy/quetiapine.html This is a class C medication. No controlled studies on humans have been done. Animal studies have shown evidence of embryo, fetal, and maternal toxicity. Neonates exposed during the 3rd trimester are at risk of withdrawal, and other major birth trauma varying in severity and impact.

You ask for proof--we live in a world of probabilities. One must weigh risk versus benefit, and hope for the best. But there are no guarantees, no perfections, no certainties. We make a choice, and those dependent on us must live with the consequences, as we all do. Good luck.
