  • I'm on 50mg of Zoloft and I'm 25 weeks. I feel MUCH better. I've been on other meds and Zoloft has by far helped the most with my anxiety. I took Lexapro with my 1st pregnancy and my baby is fine. Sometimes the benefits outweigh the risks. You have to do what's best for you. Good luck!

  • I just started taking zoloft and im in week 33. I am so worried about all the risks to my baby, but I was so depressed i felt that the benefit would outweight that risk.
