Anti depressants?

Posted by on Apr. 25, 2012 at 9:11 PM

Has anyone taken anti depressants during the third trimester? I have gad and depression anyways, but these past 5 months have been extremely rough and I have had so many things happen. I'm really thinking I may need to start medication soon or I'm going to really hit rock bottom. And I have a 2 year old to take care of also so I can't do that

I took Zoloft during my third trimester with ds. For me it was definitely the best decision because I was developing fairly severe pre partum depression. Talk to your doctor about it and they can give you some recommendations about what is best for you to take during the third trimester.

I normally take the generic paxil. I'm just really afraid that since my depression is becoming so bad right now that I will have really severe ppd after she is born in about 6 weeks

At my last appointment he said we could start something whenever I wanted I just wanted to see if anyone else has dealt with this especially with all the warnings and etc of taking these pills

I was on Celexa for a few years, and i loved it. I stopped taking it when i found out i was pregnant. That was the worst 4 weeks of my life! I'm 37 weeks now and haven't had too many problems without it. My doc did say i could get back on it during my 3rd trimester. But im scared the baby will have withdraws like i did.?? idk.:( But i am scared of PPD. So i will be on something right after hes born.But don't let yourself hit bottom. Its hard to get back up after that. Good Luck

I took wellbutrin throughout my whole last pregnancy.  Isabelle is smart and snappy :).
