I was diagnosed with postpartum depression after my last child was born. I am still on my medication ( and I really do still need it ), however....I recently found out I am pregnant with my second. I stopped taking the medication because of the pregnancy, but now I can't handle it. My mood swings are horrible....and I feel worse than I did before I even started taking the medication. I take Zoloft, and I am wondering if I should take the medication or stop it? I know you all are going to say go to the doctor about it. I am just wanting you opinions. Especially those who have gone through this themselves. Thank you in advance.Answer Question

You might be experiencing withdrawal symptoms after abruptly quitting your medication. You can discuss it with your obstetrician with regards to quitting your Zoloft or not. The side effects that were seen when taking Zoloft during pregnancy are the possibility of the baby developing birth defects. Weighing the risks and benefits would help you in making a decision and always go with your gut feeling. Check zoloft lawsuit.
