My husband is a research scientist (molecular embryologist), though he works with frogs, chickens and worms--not people.
He has discovered links between serotonin inhibitors (I hope I'm getting that right, since I'm not a scientist--Prozac is an example of something he's studied) and genetic defects.
HOWEVER, of course, this is in a different animal system. Also, I expect it is safer now than in the earliest weeks, since our babies in this DDC have all passed the earliest "form-all-the-organs" stage, and now they are just growing everything to be bigger and more fully developed. Frankly, most things that affect our babies now will do so less disasterously than things could've in the beginning.
I'm not trying to add off-topic info, nor would I try to suggest anyone do without medication they need to function. I just thought it was worth putting out there in case someone in the earlier weeks is considering the same question...
