Has anyone taken anti depressants during the third trimester? I have gad and depression anyways, but have had a really rough past 5 months and could really use my medication before I crash. Just curious since I know there are a lot of warnings out there

Don't do it. The risks to baby are not worth it hun. Try natural remedies

I did with my 1st and I had no idea the risks, she was born not breathing which is common in babies who's mothers take anti-depressants. It can cause respiratory and heart issues, just make sure you know all of the pros and cons.
