I'm not sure if I'm posting this in the right place, but I'd love some advice. I have been on Paxil for about 18 mos, and was on it a few years ago when I got pregnant with my daughter. I weaned off it early on in the pregnancy and didn't take it again until she was about 2 years old. Now we are TTC again and I really don't think I can go off of it, mostly because I am so anxious about TTC because we just had a miscarriage. I feel like I need to be on something, but I am really nervous about Paxil, given the recent studies showing it can be dangerous in pregnancy. My question: does anyone know of an anti-anxiety/anti-depressant that is safe (or at least safer than Paxil) during pregnancy that is as effective as Paxil? I'm assuming that if a drug is safe during pregnancy that it's also safe to take while breastfeeding, but if not, I'd definitely be interested in knowing what is safe while nursing too.
Thanks so much,
