Do/Did you take antidepressants during pregnancy?

Which pill? What dosage amount? Any birth defects (minor or major)?
I am trying to find which pill would be best as I am 12 weeks pregnant and suffering from depression. Any positive information would be AWESOME.
Thank you ladies!

  • I took 75 mg of Effexor while pregnant. My daughter was born perfectly healthy.

  • Maybe try thinking positivly, its drug free with no sideaffects.

    Ask your doc, he'll be able to inform you better than these women will.

    "Thinking positively" will not help if there's a chemical imbalance. What a horrible thing to say.

  • lstrickland- I don't believe you know what you are talking about. I am diagnosed bipolar and have a history of depression. I have a diagnosed chemical imbalance and with pregnancy hormoes added to the mix I am truly losing my mind. Nice of you to think that a simple mind change will help, but my craziness is beyond that. haha
