They put me on lexapro (20mg) and klonopin (2mg per day). The doctor (who wasn't my PCP) saw me the other day and upped my dosages and told me lexapro is class c and klonopin is class d. My BF and I decided to start TTC because we figure it's a good time. My son is 3.5 and for the time being I'm off meds for chronic pain.
I don't know if I should keep taking booth of these, mostly klonopin because it's class D. I don't want my meds to cause problems with my baby when I DO conceive.
Does anyone have any experience with this?

I don't have experience with the medications you're on. If you're looking at TTC, I think what you might need to do is go back to your MD and talk to them about adjusting your meds to be safe for pregnancy.

Yeah the klonopin is a no-go. You need to at least call your psych and let them know you will be TTC and that you'd like pregnancy-safe medications. There's not a TON of psych meds that are safe for pregnancy but there are a few choices.
