  • i would be worried to. imo i think you should quit taking that medication, and find a healthier more natural way to calm down your anxiety for the sake of your CHILD...

  • Here are some good articles on SSRIs and pregnancy. I was on Paxil with my last pregnancy , however, the doc took me off of it my first trimester. Sounds like they are better informed about meds now! GL to you =)

  • does your doctor know you are pregnant? i don't think you should stop until you see a doctor it could be dangerous for your body to tamper with your chemical balances.

  • i thin its completely horrible your taking this medication. maybe you should put your child first and stop thinking about yourself.. any medication is not good for you especially when pregnant and u should have been in the right state of mind before getting pregnant...
