Pregnant, BPD and medication withdrawal

(1 Post)

I just found out I'm pregnant about a week ago. I was diagnosed with BPD around 4 years and take a lot of medication to control this. All talking therapy that was offered didn't work hence the medication!

I saw my GP yesterday and he told me that ideally I wouldn't be on any medication whilst pregnant. This idea petrifies me as I was a wreck without them.

I know I have to do what's best for baby though.

I was just wondering if there is anyone reading who has came off medication who have BPD or anyone who withdrawn from venlafaxine, lamotrigine, propranalol or topirimate?

Thanks xx
