Anxiety medicine safe during pregnancy

Common Questions and Answers about Anxiety medicine safe during pregnancy


Avatar n tn Pindolol isn't working for me right now, so we're giving it a few more days and then I'll have to switch to something else. I know that Pindolol is considered safe during pregnancy, but I don't know of other beta blockers that are considered to be safe. My OB/GYN told me that atenenol was not okay.
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 suffer from anxiety have for years now. If you have questions about anxiety I probally have an answer or know where to find it just drop me a note. I also suffer from PTSD. which in turn affects anxiety. please don't be afraid to ask me questions. I am a mother of a 5 year old and one on the way. My husband is in the military and is gone for up to 6 months at a time out of the year. Its hard but I manage.
Avatar f tn I had it prescribed by a Maternal Fetal Medicine Expert (a guy who really knows his medicine and the safety of it during pregnancy!) when I was pregnant with my son who was born completely healthy and full-term on July 14th. Don't worry about it whatsoever!
Avatar f tn Has anyone bn on antidepressants during pregnancy? I'm seeing a phycologist for different situation and she told me I'm depressed and hv anxiety and I shud tell my ob right away to give me a smal dose of medication. Otherwise I will not get postpartum but go into a deep depression.
Avatar f tn Also, if it is sleep that is a struggle for you try unisom (doxylamine succinate). It is an over the counter sleep aid safe for use during pregnancy, and just half helps me fall asleep. I hope this is helpful and the best of luck to you!
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?
Avatar n tn and therapist also said that It would be the best thing for the baby during pregnancy. Since I have been weening myself off the medication It's been really hard my anxiety is at a high and I really don't sleep well at night anymore. So I been doing alot of reading just trying to focus. I Wish You the Best Of Luck Just talk to your doctor about it . I feel that I can't even stop taking the 10 ml because I'm afraid that my anxiety will be to horrible. So i still am talking to my Dr.
7552207 tn?1427024003 So I have sever depression and ADHD. I stopped all my medication during my pregnancy just because there is no 100% safe medicine to take while pregnant. And for the most part I can cope with my ADHD, but my depression is absolutely my question: 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 m tn so please take a deep breath, kiss your children, and RELAX. You are absolutely correct that the increased blood volumes during pregnancy could cause an elevation in the pressure suggested by the echo. But even more importantly, ECHO is NOTORIOUSLY unreliable for evaluating pulmonary hypertension. It is wrong ALL the time. Moreover, the number 42 is barely abnormal anyways (and again, if accurate, this was during pregnancy). What is most important is your symptoms.
175688 tn?1297560247 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 B is given to medicines that have not been adequately studied in pregnant humans, but do not appear to cause harm to the fetus in animal studies. Medications that have been shown to be safe for use in pregnancy in humans (but have caused problems in laboratory animals) are also given a Category B rating.
Avatar f tn I quit them cold turkey but I was told by the doc they were still safe to take during pregnancy. I didn't go back on them because I didn't want to be taking anything like that while being pregnant and I still suffer with anxiety and depression but I just cope with it. It is safe to take airing pregnancy if recommended though.
7730563 tn?1393785347 Some medicines are not so safe during pregnancy. But, sometimes the risk of not taking them is worse than taking them. I have seasonal asthma/ allergies. I have been on my inhaler, sinus meds, and 2 rounds of antibiotics in the past 2 weeks.when having respiratory problems such as asthma, when an attack happens it usually causes a fast raipid heartbeat and anxiety. This is not good for the baby. That is why a breathing treatment with the machine is a last resort.
Avatar f tn 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 Please suggest the cause and remedy for this. Itching in legs and arms, without any rashes or hives Itching gets very intense during night time Cant sleep more than 4 hrs at night I was asked to take Benadryl by nurse for relief from itching and to get sleep. Is it safe for baby. I have tried using moisturizer and avoided hot water bath, but no relief Is it a common symptom of pregnancy or is it something i should be worried about. Please suggest.
Avatar f tn anyone familiar or heard, know, experienced taking subutex while pregnant? i am now on 1mg per day and there is limited studies. please help.
Avatar f tn If you see a doctor ask them about pregnancy safe anxiety medicine. I was taking kolonipin for years and prior to becoming pregnant I weaned myself off to have a healthy pregnancy (with my doctor's ok). Only when I absolutely needed it I would only take about 1/4 of a pill and that was after if Valerian Root or Benedryl didn't work. My doctor put me on Buspirone which is a pregnancy safe anti anxiety pill. I still only take it as needed. Best of luck. Yoga and meditation help too.
Avatar m tn My anxiety is centered around driving. In fact, most of my time/anxiety is spent trying to figire out ways to NOT to drive, i.e., stay at my mom's, lots of things. I definately spend more time driving than others because I take side streets and avoid major roads and freeways. It ***** and my anxiety spikes really high in the morning thinking about the day ahead. Trouble is, I drive for a living inspecting houses so I kind of have to!
Avatar n tn Morning nausea. I am concerned this medicine may have damaged the fetus, if there is a pregnancy. ( I could also be menopausal). I am also afraid to just stop this med without tapering for fear of withdrawl. 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? Continue their medications or stop them? I DO NOT have epilepsy, but have taken this medication for panic/anxiety disorder.
11356079 tn?1421361418 Safe meds for anxiety during pregnancy? I have severe anxiety disorder with PTSD and over the years I have tried many non-med therapies, techniques and meds and the only thing that works is xanax.... Last time I was pregnant my doc gave me hydroxyzine but my first time taking them, my face, hands, and tongue went numb and I thought I was about to black out then I went home and was in an induced sleep that felt like anesthesia for 16 hours...
8924846 tn?1410576501 Zoloft. Zoloft is the safest one to use during pregnancy.
Avatar f tn My nurse practitioner adjusted my meds to one's that are safe during pregnancy. Talk with your doctor, stress and anxiety aren't healthy for baby either so if you can manage it in whatever way safest is best. Buspar is category B and safe to take.
Avatar n tn thn i relapse during pregnancy.. my doc said its safe to take. but um really worried will it work for me again 2nd time? :( 9 months u r suffering like me. um 24/7 anxious take clonazepum/ bromazepum anything that i can atleast sleep for some time. um suffering from ocd, panic and depression :( eveyday i cry and not want to live .
Avatar f tn I was wondering if any of you expecting ladies have had trouble with this during their pregnancy. I don't really want to go back onto meds especially while pregnant, but if it might help I will try. Have any of you been on medicine for anxiety or depression while pregnant? Any idea what meds are safe?
Avatar f tn I have read now that I am unable to take this medicine during pregnancy. I am very concerned what i will do if I have a severe anxiety attack that I can not bring down on my own. With the hormone surges in my first trimester, I have experienced a faster rate and increased palpitations. Is there anything safe I can request that I can take on an as-needed basis?
Avatar n tn I'm a 60 year old men, in excellent health, except for experiencing tremors during sleep that wake me up and have difficulty going back to sleep. As I start to fall sleep again, I feel these "rumbleling" (tremors) around my upper body. I immediately wake up again. These tremors last for about 10-15 seconds after I wake up. The first time I experienced this condition was exactly two years ago. It lasted for about four days and it simply went away.
Avatar f tn 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.
