  • My Dr. told me lexapro was fine to take up until the 3rd trimester. I would still talk to your doctor, there are options.

  • Treatment during pregnancy involves several avenues. Developing your support network is extremely valuable. Having yourself surrounded by supportive individuals that you know can be beneficial, particularly if they have experienced the same feelings. Talking to a professional or psychotherapy can be very beneficial, particularly since there are major changes going on during pregnancy. Medications can also be used during pregnancy under the care of a practitioner who has experience with using antidepressants and other medications during the course of pregnancy and breastfeeding.

  • Honey, you need to get to your doctor ASAP. None of us on here can give you a good answer because we are not doctors, do not know your medical history, etc. YOu need to let your doctor know IMMEDIATLY so the he/she can get you the help that will make a difference. Good luck, and if you need someone to talk to you are more than welcome to message me.
