What side effects have you experienced with taking meds while TTC and or pregnant. If low birth weight, what was the weight? Having a hard time trying to decide to stay on or quit meds. I tried to remain off, but have had a very hard low, anxious, etc...

I'm pregnant and I took my lexapro while TTC, but my body didn't even want it any more as soon as I got pregnant. Went off with no side effects. I'm using meditation techniques to combat my anxiety now..
And I tried to get off many times and had lots of side effects!

Why do you say, "my body didn't even want it..."


Quoting Dswifey111:

I tried it because I have major anxiety where I get hospitalized but my body rejected me taking it. I had horrible side effects while on it and my OBGYN told me to stop it immediately. I would shake while on it, sleep constantly, confused, I would forget a lot of things and just wasn't me at all. I was on it for a month and that was while ttc. I'm 15 weeks 1 day pregnant and my anxiety level has actually gone down A LOT. I'm no longer anxious and when I do get anxious it's not as bad.
