Medication and Pregnancy

Just wondering if anyone is pregnant and taking either Zoloft (sertraline) or Toprol XL (metaporpolol).  I currently take both - one for anxiety and the other because I have PVCs and tachycardia (which causes the anxiety).  I am now estimated 6 weeks pregnant, and am having to make the decision about wether or not to come off my meds.  I am in the process of weighing my pros and cons, but wonder if any other moms have been on any meds while pregnant.  I would appreciate any input.

Sorry ladybug! I have no idea! Call your DOC and ask if you can!

If they say it's ok, then you should ask if there is a lower dosage you can take. If you have your anixiety under control, then I say stop the meds! However, I can imagine first time pregnancy might cause a lot of anxiety and stress! So, im on the border here! Im not sure of your condition or how bad it gets, but if were me, I would stop them! At least until the first trimester is over. (They say is when the baby does most of the developing brain, heart, lungs, ect) I don't know. I keep jumping back and forth! LOL Sorry i cant be much help***
