trinity_lei: Paxil

Another newbie here with a question about PAxil and pregnancy.  Anyone been on it before, during or after pregnancy?  I'm on it now, and worried about the effects it may have on the fetus.  Thanks!

No problem, you are really welcome :) Be sure to research as much as possible to help in the decision to what medication to use during pregnancy.
Before I got pregnant I was on cymbalta, but seeing as it is a newer drug my shrink wanted to switch me to zoloft. Which is what I was and still am on during breastfeeding. It's one that they feel is "safer"

My doctor told me that all SSRIs carry a risk of a discontinuation syndrome in the baby when it is born and stops receiving the med. I don't know much else about it though. My doc didn't seem to think it was life-threatening or anything, just uncomfortable, sort of like withdrawal. Congrats btw :)

Thank you for that info. I really appreciate it! I guess I should have made it clear that I'm not pregnant yet, but hoping to be soon. Thanks again for your post! The more I know before TTC the better! :)
