I just had a baby 7 months ago and was on meterprolol the whole pg though only 12.5 mg daily... anxiety meds were not safe so i stopped them just prior to pg .. I had a healthy baby boy.. good luck
I took 20mg of Paxil throughout my pregnancy and all went well. For me, with severe anxiety, the benefit of the SSRI outweighed any risk. Not all anxiety meds have the same safety profile - for example you should definitely avoid Xanax during pregnancy. Talk to your doctor, because even among the SSRIs some are safer during pregnancy than others.
Thank you both for your input! I am still trying to make the decision.
