  • You have a good Dr.
    Like Dard says, all meds affect pregnancy. Some more so than others. Not sure which med your on, but you can google the side effects of it.

  • Your doctor is just being thorough and careful. There may be some anti-anxiety drugs that can be taken during pregnancy, but it's better to at least know what you're getting into.
