Think you should get advice from your GP....I was taking 10mg and as soon as I got my BFP, I stopped and my GP won't consider any treatment for me until I'm 16 weeks - which is a little over the top from what I can gather.

Speak to your GP quickly and get some advice

Congratulations BTW smile

not had any experience, but I believe there are other ADs which are preferred in pg

it's a case of weighing up the risk/harm benefit

I was on Citalopram when I found out I was pregnant - but looking at the dates I probably didn't start taking it till I was already pregnant (stepped up from Fluoxetine).

I was changed to Imipramine once they knew I was pregnant, which I found pretty rubbish and ended up coming off… so now I'm going it alone

There's no research to say Citalopram's harmful though, I don't think - just not enough research to say for sure that it's safe.

Good. Hope you're ok and manage without ok - you can go back and get something else when you're over the 12 week stage if you need to.
