depression and medication

6 weeks along. My doctor took me off two of my antidepressants, leaving me on the class B welbutrin. My mood and mental health have been in sharp decline. I don't want to hurt my baby, but does anyone know what the risks are for Prozac and/or abilify? I'm struggling to get through the day and can't work at all like this. I'm scared and sad, and my poor husband is doing his best, but it's just not enough. I need help.

You should talk to your doctor... They can give you a different kind if yours isn't working... Zoloft is also okay to take while pregnant... Hope you start feeling better I was in the same circumstance a few weeks ago

I continue taking my effexor while pregnant. With my son, the doctor and I discussed it and decided it was worth the risks because of how I am when I'm not medicated. So I decided this time to continue as well.

I was on fluoxitine and the doctor said its fine for pregnancy but when the baby is born it may experience withdrawals. So its not harmful so to speak but your baby gets addicted to it. I stopped taking it and it hasnt been easy. Hope you get through! !
