  • Hi! I went to a "Psychopharmacologist" while going through IVF for the specific purpose of finding an antidepressant that was safe to take during IVF and pregancy. She put me on Lexapro. I took it through my pregnancy (had twins in Oct. 2009) and all is well :) Hope this helps!!

  • This is reassuring to hear. Thank you.

    @tinkdust, do you mind telling the mg dosage?
    @Bratch1707 do you feel different or same being pregnant and on Prozac?
