I have had a problem with anxiety and depression pretty much all my life. I had been on some kind of medicine for about 5 years. I stopped my medication last year in March because my Medicaid was running out since I was about to turn 19 in May, my cut off date and I wanted to give myself a chance to feel all the withdrawals before it did. Ever since I have been pretty good at managing it. I hadn't felt depressed out of the blue, just when I was stressed in some way. My anxiety stayed with me, but manageable. But the last two weeks my mother and I haven't been getting along and I have had trouble with my depression. Whenever I am alone my thoughts all come to a head and I get really depressed. I do feel like hurting myself during these episodes, but I am able to ignore them. I haven't had a problem with hurting myself in the past, just a few times in those 5 years on meds. But I am 31 weeks pregnant with my very supportive fiance who has helped me through everything. But even with all his help I feel like I need to get help for the health of my child. I was wondering if any of you expecting ladies have had trouble with this during their pregnancy. I don't really want to go back onto meds especially while pregnant, but if it might help I will try. Have any of you been on medicine for anxiety or depression while pregnant? Any idea what meds are safe?
