  • A) You shouldn't be on all of those prescriptions.
    B) If you think there is a good chance you are pregnant and they urine dip tests are not assuaging your worries then I would go to Your doc and ask for a blood test. It is much more accurate and you'll be able to tell sooner.
    C) I hope if you are pregnant that you get off most if not all of those RXs.

  • PS. To the anonymous person who replied. Those drugs can be taken together.
    Lamictal - Epiliepsy
    Prozac - Depression
    Xanax - Anxiety disorders
    Zantac - Stomach acid
    Albuterol - Asthma/emphysema
    And Nuvaring of course is for Birth Control...

    I hope you have one doctor monitoring your intake of all of these. Also, if you are trying to get pregnant you should talk to your doc first and see what they say. Maybe there're some healthier versions for you and the lil one.
