I conceived and gave birth and breast-fed on 20mg a day - and have two adorable boys, 3 yrs and 6 months.
I spoke to my GP about this when I found out I was pregnant with DS1 and she said that of course, there have never been controlled tests of pregnancy and a drug like this (wd be unethical to run them), but that lots of women she cares for have had perfectly healthy babies.
Worth talking it over with your GP - or whoever is treating you with maybe getting a referral to discuss further with a hospital doctor/psychiatrist?
good luck, with babies and with keeping depression under control
i was on lofepraime when i concieved (for PND) and gp advised i came off it a couple of weeks later after weaning myself off, to be honest it wasn't about the risk it was just a good reason to try without
time4tea is right only your gp can advise you, and don't feel bad about being on ad's and ttc I did for a while but remember its your decision but they can give you the best advice
hi.I`m on citalopram 20mg daily and 22 weeks pregnant. This was a planned pregnancy and my psychiatrist and obstetrician advised me to remain on it during pregnancy. I was told that the risks are minimal to the baby and it is not known to cause any malformations. I also had my previous baby on antidepressants and he is a very healthy 3 year old. However each case is different and you should still get medical advice before conceiving. Good luck.
