Hi! I am almost 25 weeks pregnant with my second kid. I've been on Cymbalta this whole time for issues with anxiety and OCD. Please do not flame me for being on psych meds while pregnant; it has been approved by all my health care professionals and is/was very needed.
I've been feeling more stable lately and would like to attempt to wean off Cymbalta for the third trimester, so as to avoid the more common "issues" that babies can experience soon after birth (breathing issues etc.) I am aware that the chance of this is slight, but I'd still like to try to do my best for my baby. If I just end up on a lower dose instead of weaning completely off, I'm fine with that too.
Anyway, I am going to be doing this under the care and advice of my psychiatrist, but I was wondering if anyone had any helpful tips that might make the process a little easier. I would very much appreciate it!
