Ladies I have been on Met since August 2000mg. And I am waiting on the drug store to refill my prescription. I had planned on weaning off of it slowly because I wasn't sure its effects would be if I stopped it to quickly on my pregnancy. I am really kinda worried because I haven't had it at all today. Did anyone stop Met cold turkey when they found out they were pregnant??
Update: Thank you ladies for your responses. I wanted to kinda update and give more info. Last week prior to finding out I was preggo I went in for a yearly checkup with my family Dr. I explained to her that I was losing my hair at a rapid rate from the roots and she told me it was absolutely from the Met and I needed to stop taking it. I waited however because even then I suspected I could be preggo and I wanted to wait and find out if we had conceived before I stopped it. So I contacted my OB today and he suggested I continue taking them throughout the pregnancy because it helps prevent GD. But I forgot to share with him that it was causing me to lose my hair. So considering I have never had GD or even so much as high blood pressure during pregnancy (even though this particular OB always considers me a risk simply because I am overweight) and my hair is still falling out and thinning very quickly, I decided to down my dose from 2,000 to 1,000 mg. I will continue it until 8 wks (since I do have a fear of stopping it and it causing a MC) and then I will stop it. Thank you ladies for the replies!!
