Depression medication

I just found out that I'm about 5 weeks pregnant. Is it alright for me to continue to take my Depression medication or should I stop? My doctor (Not my pregnant Doctor) said it "should be fine"... Should scares me.

  • It's fine - I was on Zoloft for my last pregnancy.

  • Call your OB and ask. I know they probably won't see you for a few weeks, but I would call and talk to them about the specific medication you're on.

  • Most of the time if you are already taking it your OB/GYN will tell you to continue the medication. They may only lower the doses. But talk to your OB/GYN first before you make any decisions.
