Avatar n tn My nurse practitioner said she had seen a lot of babies born to women on anti-anxiety meds, but most are not assessed for pregnant women, so talk to your doctor. It's a cost/benefit thing, always do whatever makes sense given the possible consequences.
3178266 tn?1344539916 Almost all of them are contraindicated for pregnant women, though given how hard it is to quit them that doesn't mean quitting is workable. The companies who make mood regulating drugs are all being sued right now for birth defects they didn't warn anyone about. What you need to do is talk to your doctor, carefully and thoughtfully weigh the risks, and make an informed decision.
11970398 tn?1443138202 There will always be a possibility of any of those scenarios happening but the beauty of modern medicine is.... There is medicine to help with pain....if your going for a vaginal birth and something goes wrong you'll be rushed for an emergency c section a number of women give birth and their babies aren't breathing for a number of reasons...a bit of suction down the throat and a few pumps of oxygen and most of them come to it and are fine. But that's just life.
Avatar f tn and said it's because i was pregnant. They see alot of women like that. Had my little boy heart rate went back down. I had maybe like one or 2 panic attacks a year, i would take a xanax, and be ok. In the back of my mind, i guess i have always worried and been a worrier. Mostly about health anxiety. For some reason after i got my flu shot last year (i put a post up about it yesterday) my anxiety got different and worse to me.
Avatar m tn hey thanks for all of the comments. I am no professional athlete but I play one on tv!! Kinding... I am however a professional sports turf manager. So i walk, run, carry, lift, push, pull ALL day long. I am in pretty descent shape. my fat comes from my eating habits not my exercise habits. with that being said, I have been chasing this "anxiety" for a little over two years now. its started when I took psuedoephedrine..sp.. and thought i was going to DIE...
Avatar n tn Sure, pregnancy and child rearing is exhausting work, but sometimes it's an easy label for us women. I wish you all the best on your quest for optimum health.
Avatar f tn On the one hand, we know that depression or severe anxiety are bad for the unborn child, and you are obviously suffering too. On the other hand there are some pregnancy issues when taking those medications - 1. Medications may cause an increased risk of fetal malformations (birth defects). The risk is quite variable from medicine to medicine. Certain medicines, like Prozac, have been taken by many, many women who have given birth.
Avatar f tn I have struggled with anxiety for a good part of my life. It is very easy for the anxiety to take over your life and really reduce your quailty of liife. I believe that for me my terrille anxiety during pregnancy led to me have PPD/PPA. Do you belong to a place of worship that you could go to for extra support? It is key to surround yourself with other supportive people. I would really go to a good psychologist as well and therapy. I think your little one will be just fine.
Avatar n tn There is a medicine that is safe for pregnant women that you guys can take for panic attacks and anxiety. They prescribe it to pregnant women all the time. It's called Welbutrin. I was one it for anxiety before I was pregnant, even though it is known as a antidepressent medicine. It increases the dopamine and norepinephrine the chemicals that really help with your moods. Also it is additionally sold under the brand name Zyban to help stop the urge to smoke.

Avatar f tn My doctor suggested me to take Gonadil F but the description of the medicine says that it is for males infertility so i am pretty much confused about it can anyone tell me is it appropriate for enhancing women fertility or not? please reply me.

Avatar f tn As far as detoxing while pregnant, that could be really bad for baby. This is another thing you should seek an OB for. I will say continuing the use of morphine will not do the baby any favors and has the potential to do immeasurable harm.

299260 tn?1304219705 I was sooo sick when I was pregnant, and took medicine constantly not knowing I was pregnant! The first 3 months are the most important, but those little ones stay tough! Good luck to you! Don't get discouraged if your test on Sunday is -ve, because it will still be early, but it is a good start date to test! :) Keyan- You're welcome! I'm always checking on my friends! :) I'm so glad af still hasn't shown for you! That's a great sign that your temps are still up too!!!
299260 tn?1304219705 If you don't want to you never have to get pregnant again. That would be the most perfect sinero for me!!! I am so excited for you. Uh oh... time to return a few things? Or save them all and start doubling up for your son. Aww you're going to have a son!! And a daughter!!! I am super excited. I wish I could be at that baby shower. You should set up a webcam so we can all watch. (I work in IT can you tell?
299260 tn?1304219705 ) Before I read you called in sick, I was hoping you would, you poor thing ;( Your work is much too demanding for a pregnant woman. It's just my opinion, but I think early maternity leave may be in order :) Take care of yourself! mrspace: Sounds like you're healing up well, aside f/your stitches opening up! Ouch ;( Youre back to work, so that's a great sign. When will you see your doc again?
299260 tn?1304219705 I started making a list of things I need to take to the hospital for me and for the baby and a few things for DH. The baby's list is sooo small. I don't even know what I need. I feel like a bad mom already. MOMMYIN10- Have you made your list yet? What do I need besides a car seat and an outfit?
Avatar f tn I'm already a worry wort. I worry about everything, I guess that's what most women do. But I'm 8 weeks and 5 days. I don't feel pregnant at all. Or I'm bored in the 1st trimester. I would love for the dr. To give me another ultrasound so I can see a beating heart. I probably shouldn't have read all those miscarriage stories. I hope everything is okay. I have an appt in appt April to hear the heart beat. I just have to wait.
Avatar n tn if you have cable like Xfinity they have some great things on there on demand that's free its for pregnant women Pilates is on there and so is yoga and it really helps release stress and tension
1535595 tn?1317993633 Oxycodone 30mg every 4 hours for the first 6 months, then 15mg every 4 hours until i was about 7 1/2 months pregnant, then went down to percocet 10/325 for about a month then started cutting them in half. The last 3 weeks of my pregnancy my doctor put me on Norcos 10/325 which i would cut in half. I would take them about 4-5 times daily.
Avatar f tn I was on medicine for anxiety/depression before I got pregnant and obviously stopped taking them but now I'm starting to feel like I need to take something again. My anxiety is getting bad. Doctor today said to go see my psychiatrist and she can prescribe me something that is safe during pregnancy. He said maybe zoloft? Any other mommies on meds like this? What are you taking?
Avatar n tn You really do sound like you're going through some anxiety. You even say you're maybe too much in touch w/ things going on & that means your sub-brain is also wk'g overtime. Your Eustachian Tubes are in the 'back' of your throat & help to regulate ear pressure. Guys often have less swallowing space than woman so the pull may be the click? More guys snore more than women. ALS has more severe what they call fasciculations (twitches/jerks/leg cramps/etc.
363243 tn?1331037450 Many women will see results within 4 to 8 weeks when used twice a day every day but for some women it may take longer. With VANIQA, you'll feel confident that people won't notice your UFH, even when you're up close... I saw a commercial for it last night I'm really thinking about it.
988694 tn?1332363079 I am wondering if anybody here is using bio identical, progesterone cream, or any other kind of sex hormones and plus taking thyroid medicine. Did you have to regulate, increase, decrease thyroid medicine dose? did you notice a difference in your body soon? any other advise? are you still able to get pregnant while on these hormonal creams? Thanks!
Avatar f tn you may want to google it to learn more about the procedure and what it does. been around for decades. recommended mostly for married/monogamous women. you can get in in a regular doctor's visit. it's good for up to 5 or 10 yrs depending on which one you get and just as easily removed in a doctor's visit whenever you get ready. the cooper one is the best b/c it contains no hormones.
Avatar dr m tn Many people with panic disorders can be treated either conservatively with therapy of stress control and relaxation methods, but many people end up being placed on an anti-anxiety medications. Any time I see patients in my practice with anxiety disorders, in almost every case, the person prefers not to sleep on his or her back. The reasons for this is that due to certain anatomic factors, if the person lays flat on his or her back, then due to gravity, the tongue falls back partially.
