I'm 9 weeks pregnant with my 2nd child. I have previously been on Seroxat for 5 years, and have just been weaned off it, as it is unsafe during pregnancy, and started on Sertraline. I am agrophobic and suffer from depression. Is anyone else out there mum to be, or mum who was on this medication.

Hey, not on the same meds, but am on Prozac. I came off it at week six when I found out, and went back on it at 24 weeks because I was struggling too much. Just to say I sympathise.

Thanks, nice to hear from someone in a similar boat.

Hey, I was on Seroxat for about 7 years, was weaned off it before first pregnancy - I found that very difficult with the dizzy moments/anxiety problems. I'm now on Citalopram. If it helps apparently Sertraline is one of the best for lack of side effects and is very well "tolerated" according to the links my GP has sent me (my mum is on it...). Don't worry - I've been there too on a new I sympathise hugely.
