Avatar n tn I was on a light dose of Zoloft when pregnant, i.e., the smallest pill and I broke it in half. 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.

Avatar m tn It was hard to find a OB doctor who would be willing to supervise me under Celexa when pregnant. But I found a sympathetic doc who said Celexa is safe for pregnant women, baby born perfectly healthy. Celexa took away my agoraphobia. But when you start on a new meds, people have to test the meds. You can't just stay inside taking the meds. there will always be the doubt if the meds will work or not. So after 1 and a half weeks of taking the meds, I started going outside to sweep the porch.

Avatar m tn Hi there. If your doctor prescribed Lexapro for anxiety, please don't allow your anxiety to interfere with your treatment. :>) Many people take Lexapro and feel better. Some do decide to go off and tapering significantly helps with any withdrawal. There are lots of horror stories but the ones in which discontinuing a medication was not a problem match the number. So, don't let fear and anxiety stop you from feeling better. Talk to your doctor.
11970398 tn?1443134602 There will always be a possibility of any of those scenarios happening but the beauty of modern medicine is....

But that's just life.
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 f tn I have taken anxiety medication prior to becoming pregnant but then stopped.. about 2months after stopping the medication I found out I was expecting. Im currently 15 weeks, I find some days are harder then others. I try to stay positive and keep my mind occupied. The first 8 weeks of my pregnancy was extremely tough. I find my anxiety is effecting my blood pressure when I first get to my OB office, I try to relax and breathe threw it.
Avatar f tn Has anyone used CCRM (Colorado Center for Reproductive Medicine)? From what I've read they are practically miracle workers for women over 38. We live in CA, though, so it would be a huge investment of time and money, plus finding someone to stay home with our 12 year old I'm trying to find someone who used CCRM and find out what their experience was...
