When I found out that I was pregnant I immediately came off of my effexor xr. I was really worried because my anxiety before I began taking the meds was rough. But I was pleasantly surprised when I had no symptoms for my entire pregnancy. I was even more surprised when I didn't have any postpartum depression. I felt like a new person! I have never been symptom free without medication!
This new life only lasted for three months, though. A month ago my symptoms came back. Instead of being this put together happy new mother, I became this frazzled and frustrated mother. My anxiety is back in full force.
I wonder if there is a way to get back to being anxiety free without going back on medication. I am on the fence with all the info out there about whether effexor is safe for nursing infants.
Is there anyone out there with the same experience?
