Common Questions and Answers about Anxiety medicine and pregnancy


Avatar f tn Have any moms been put on depression and/or anxiety medicine during pregnancy?
Avatar f tn Hey all. This is my first time posting anything. So I'm due November 14th. I was diagnosed with depression when I was 17, I'm 21 now, I've taken medicine on and off. Mostly off because of my stubbornness. Because of all the hormone changes I've been extremely depressed. My therapist suggests possibly getting back on medicine because she's worried about me. Unfortunate to say I'm worried.
7552207 tn?1427020403 After baby is here, will I be able to take my depression medicine and breast feed? I have my heart set on breast feeding and I feel selfish if I cant just because of my own reasons...
Avatar f tn Have you tried exercise? It is said to test better than anti-anxiety meds for reducing symptoms of anxiety and depression.
Avatar f tn I have svt. And yes pregnancy does effect it i hate to say :( i get them much more often and alot longer.
Avatar f tn Part of your problem with missing a dose of the Celexa is that it throws you into withdrawal -- these meds need to be stopped slowly and carefully, tapering off. So before you get pregnant, stop the Celexa slowly so you don't have to rush. So that's first.
Avatar m tn I too had OCD/anxiety problems during pregnancy. Can I ask how far along in your pregnancy did you start the celexa and go back on the ativan?

88793 tn?1290227177 I hope someone here can give me some ideas what's going on with me. If breakfast just drink 2 cups of coffee (without sugar), do you still need to take half a tablet of Minidiab? My hands, legs, chest and may be the head as well is vibrated very often. After a sleep, as soon as I awake, my chest is like an Express Train (fast light beats? Vibrates? or like Fibrilation?). Follow with sweating and nausea (like gastric). After get up from bed, have 2 cups of strong coffee then feel better.
Avatar f tn I am on Atenolol 10mg which is a beta blocker and so far all is well. You should see a maternal, fetal medicine specialist, and make sure your cardio output and gestational age match, just call your OB!
5528454 tn?1384292552 Id you tell your Dr he or she will give you something to help. My anxiety attacks are really bad. I am on my 6th pregnancy btw and is a very high risk one so i have alot of stress and anxiety but three pills do help. Hope you start feeling better.
Avatar n tn This is my first pregnancy, and I'm having some problems with anxiety and nervousness. I worry myself sick over the smallest aches and pains, but at the time I feel totally right for worrying. Is there any way that I can relieve stress? A few friends and family members have suggested yoga as a distraction, but were saving money for a baby and the last thing I need is to spend money on yoga. I just can't stop worrying and keep myself up at night sometimes.
Avatar f tn Before my first pregnancy, I suffered from anxiety in the 1st trimester. I also suffered from post partum depression after his birth for several months. As soon as I got pregnant with this baby, I began having anxiety attacks again. Hormones are crazy!!!!
Avatar f tn I have had a problem with anxiety and depression pretty much all my life. I had been on some kind of medicine for about 5 years. I stopped my medication last year in March because my Medicaid was running out since I was about to turn 19 in May, my cut off date and I wanted to give myself a chance to feel all the withdrawals before it did. Ever since I have been pretty good at managing it. I hadn't felt depressed out of the blue, just when I was stressed in some way.
Avatar f tn I do i get anxiety and it gets bad i dont take medicine i just got outside away from everyone and try to relax
Avatar f tn i have panic attaks and anxiety .i was taking seroxat 20mg and helex 0.25mg two times a doctor told me to stop taking them till pregnant but i cant live without them.
Avatar f tn Has anyone gotten anxiety and depression well pregnant? I started getting anxiety attacks at night and now I get them day and night. I'm starting to get depressed over them. The doctor wants to put me on anxiety/depression medicine but I don't want to take any medicine well pregnant. I also read that it can cause heart problems for the baby. Have you taken medicineand did it affect the baby? Are there natural ways to help with anxiety?
Avatar f tn I am also afraid to just stop this med without tapering for fear of withdrawl,I have too much stress for too many years a go and also muscle Twitching, and just clonazepam had help me to continue my life.and now i want too much to have a child.but i am afriad of addition i am 31 years old Can you give me any advice.? I'm sure there are many women who take an anticonvulsant for epilepsy, which I know clonazepam used for so, what do these women do?
Avatar n tn Any ladies have severe anxiety before pregnancy & still on medication for it while pregnant? I'm not on any but my anxiety is out of control & I know with only two months til my baby is due I'll be freaking out a lot more. Any meds you know of safe for pregnancy?
Avatar f tn I have suffered severe anxiety and depression since my first child was born 19 years ago!! I have a 19 year old and 14 year old daughters from first marriage and 7 month old from second marriage . I have been on at least 8 different meds that I can remember through these years and with my last pregnancy I was on wellbutrin when found out I was pregnant with my now 7 month old daughter. The doctor did not recommend the welbuttrin through that pregnancy and my midwife switched me to celexa!
1162258 tn?1306916207 The way I look at it, It is bad enough I have not slept in over a month, but to add the flu/cold is just not right and I need to be able to function and work until I have my baby.( No one else pays my bills but me! No work=not paying mortgage) If its only a few days when you are miserable. I do not see the harm...but others may feel different.
Avatar f tn Ive been struggling with anxiety for years and I take colonpin for it. But since I got pregnant (2nd pregnancy) I know I can't take that particular medicine. Are there any moms out there who got put on 'safe' anxiety medicine while pregnant? Is there such a thing? I'm so bad I can't leave my house without having a melt down.
Avatar f tn Food and Drug Administration (FDA) uses a pregnancy category system to classify the possible risks to a fetus when a specific medicine is taken during pregnancy. Pregnancy Category C is given to medicines that show side effects to the fetus in animal studies, but no human studies in pregnant women have been done.
