  • She needs to talk to her doctor. She shouldn't be taking anything without a doctor's approval while pregnant!

  • I know Xanax is a no-no while pregnant and breastfeeding. I used to take it. I switched to Zoloft when pregnant as it's 'safer'.

  • Xanax is in pregnancy category D, meaning you should not take it. You shouldn't take it esp. in the first trimester!
