I've had anxiety and depression since I was little. I am now 25 yrs old and I'm 11 weeks pregnant. I've gone on and off anxiety and depression medication for my whole life, and I was medication free for a few months before I got pregnant (I didn't want to deal with pills anymore- needed a break). Now I am experience shortness of breath, I feel like I can't breathe in all the way like I'm suffocating- it makes me tingle and dizzy. I went to the ER, they gave me a small dose of Ativan. Now my primary has me on .5 mg of Ativan daily as needed, but it doesn't keep the panic attach at bay for the whole day. I've looked around online and it sounds like there are other families of medications that would be safer for me to be taking other than Ativan. I see my doctor tomorrow morning, and my OB is out until Jan 6th. I can't cope without medication, I just want to know I'm taking the safest thing possible, and I don't feel like Ativan is it. Has anyone else dealt with this? What worked for you?
