Hi everyone - really wanted some advice from someone that is on the same medication and pregnant or been pregnant on this medication- I miscarried in November last year due to 'natural causes' but I'm obviously worried about my tablets- found out I was pregnant again today an really worried about the effect of these pills on my unborn baby- please help xx
I was on quetiapine after my baby was born (he was about 3 months old) - I found because I was BF it was making him very very drowsy so I actually stopped taking it after a week. I really think that you should have a chat to your doctor/psychiatrist about this.
I was on Quetiapine (modified release) throughout my pregnancy. My DS is nearly 5 months old now and is fine. I came off it for breast feeding (it was really hard to get anyone to tell me if it was safe or not so in the end my psychiatrist said to try without it) but had to start taking it again due to a manic episode when he was 3 months. I now breast feed part time (waiting 12 hours after my dose for the levels to be lower) after my psychiatrist got advice from another consultant. Best of luck with your pregnancy!
