I have social anxiety and it's affecting my personal life. I have been prescripied paroxetine recently. I've read  he drug side effects and I'm concerned about the possible risk if becoming pregnant. I'm not pregnant or planning  but I also do not take bc. So I know there's a possibility I could get pregnant in the future. I am afraid of taking this medication and becoming pregnant and the possible risks to the fetus in the first trimester. Anyone take this medication and became pregnant? I need advice. I will discuss this concern with my Dr.

I see on TV lawsuits with many anxiety meds and pregnancy. Personally I would not want to ever risk a pregnancy being on anxiety drugs and pregnancy or any drug for that matter. Personally of there are warnings people should not be able to sue.

I would start on some reliable BC to help prevent unwanted pregnancy. If your anxiety is affecting your personal life, then you need medication to help get it under control.
