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 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 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.
1374102 tn?1363009479 I have to disagree with the tylenol cold above. Tylenol is safe during pregnancy, but the cold medications in tylenol cold are not.
7552207 tn?1427020403 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 terrible...so 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...
7730563 tn?1393781747 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 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!
652671 tn?1353712165 I know you aren't doctors, but my OB GYN is just not helping me with this. I don't have a general practitioner (he retired and they pretty much told me to go elsewhere) I did go to see a psychiatrist at the free clinic, but the man hardly spoke english and in my opinion was an hour wasted. I see a counselor for generalized anxiety disorder (we think that's what i have - i'm not so sure anymore ...
Avatar f tn Normally flying during pregnancy is safe except in your last trimester where a lot of companies will make you bring a note from a dr, but Bc of your fear of flying and your anxiety i am very unsure if its ok. You have to call your dr and ask.
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.
1057060 tn?1266513126 ve used them through 4 of my 5 full term pregnancies and had no problems whatsoever and will be using it during this pregnancy as well. My docs have actually encouraged me to use it becuase as the baby gets bigger and presses against your lungs it makes it even harder to breath. It is FAR worse on the fetus to not get the adequate amount of oxygen becuase that can have a very detrimental affect.
Avatar f tn I take loratidine my dr says thats safe
Avatar f tn Before we started trying to conceive I tappered of a low dose of lexapro hoping I would be able to cope without medicine. Now 24 weeks today I am finding my anxiety and depression returning and I'm am not dealing with it well. Lots of crying from stress and just can't shut my brain off. My doctor has prescribed me zoloft but I am still worried about taking it. Has anyone else gone through this? What research and doctors info did you get?
5975291 tn?1430718287 s not much you can take besides Tylenol .. I was sick about 3 times during my pregnancy and drank non caffeinated tea with honey and lemon .. And only took Tylenol once because I had a fever ..
Avatar f tn My ob gave a list of over the counter meds to take during pregnancy. Tylenol severe cold and flu is safe in all trimesters so is mucinex.
Avatar f tn started reading the directions (take 1 tablet by mouth twice a day) before i even took one it came attached to more papers and on the paper it specifically says not to take during the first 3 months of pregnancy. So I decided to google and all I see are negative things. I am 8 weeks pregnant & I have no idea what to do. Has anyone else taken them or had any problems? Help please. This is my second pregnancy. First was a success and took no meds besides the prenatals. Thanks in advance!
Avatar f tn I took 4 ibuprofen during pregnancy 3 hours apart.. I read online that ibuprofen is not allowed during pregnancy??? Does anyone know if it's ok or why it's not allowed my doctors office won't answer but I'm really scared now.
Avatar f tn Hydrocodone is safe during pregnancy so long as it's not taken for a long period of time. I have taken the hydrocodone 7/500 tabs with this pregnancy due to severe back and hip pain. I also took it for a wisdom tooth removal with one of my other pregnancies.
331213 tn?1217164831 Lexapro and Zoloft are two of the preferred options and you can breast feed while taking these, Paxil is now a Class D drug and should NOT be taken during pregnancy, and Prozac is safe to take during pregnancy BUT is expressed in breast milk and has a long half life so this is NOT recommended if you are considering breast feeding.
