TTC - Trying to Conceive TTC - Trying to Conceive

Zolfot, Topamax and TTC...

Posted by   + Show Post

Do either of you take either of those and have you experienced any problems? 

I have been taking Zoloft for years but I wasn't taking it either time that I got PG before. The online stuff says no problems and that it's ok to take after getting PG but I know that sometimes they aren't all that forthcoming about the sideeffects. 

I take the Topamax (Topimirate) for migraines. It's an anti-seziure medication which also claims no fertility problems but it causes all kinds of other issues, like sever weight loss (ain't complaining there) and mood swings. I don't want to take myself off it if I don't need to. 

Thanks ladies!

the only safe way is no meds personal opinion I was on celexa and norvasc I had stopped celexa by choice and norvac as it was a class c drug however I do now take methladopa a class b drug but I take it sparingly unfortunantly if I don't take it I could have a stroke heart attack etc....... I try to maintain as much as I can and I limit my dosage.

I agree. I've been doing A LOT of research on how to get my family off of the drugs they are on and taking natural vitamins instead. I definitely think that improving our diet and adding some vitamins will help with weaning me off things.

be careful you can also do harm by natural methods too.

It's had the most studies done on it as far as it's safety with pregnancy. I just spoke with my doctor today abot it and have talked to my obgyn...

Prozac IS NOT SAFE FOR PREGNANCY prozac can cause spontaneous misscarages.

I'm going to my doc tomorrow to discuss antidepressants. I've been on Wellbutrin, but stopped in February when I thought I might be pregnant. Now I'm going tomorrow to get started on something more baby-friendly. In talking to my mom (nurse practitioner) she has said that Zoloft and Prozac are usually safe at the beginning of pregnancy.  I don't think they interfere with getting pregnant. 

Not sure about Topamax. I've never heard of it causing issues. You could call and talk to your doctor though. I know I wouldn't quit my migraine meds if I didn't have to. LOL GL

I agree. I was on Prozac with DS and it made me so sick. I threw up when I took it. I'm sure they have changed the formula by now.

I'll have to double check with my ob when I have my preconception visit. I don't want to be misinformed. But that's what UptoDate says too (doc info database)
