Any ladies have severe anxiety before pregnancy & still on medication for it while pregnant? I'm not on any but my anxiety is out of control & I know with only two months til my baby is due I'll be freaking out a lot more. Any meds you know of safe for pregnancy?

I was on a light dose of Zoloft when pregnant, i.e., the smallest pill and I broke it in half.  My nurse practitioner said she had seen a lot of babies born to women on anti-anxiety meds, but most are not assessed for pregnant women, so talk to your doctor.  It's a cost/benefit thing, always do whatever makes sense given the possible consequences.

I have really bad panic attacks I stopped taking my medicine when I found I was pregnant just because but my panic attacks got really bad and i ended up being put in the hospital multiple times so they ended up putting me on Ativan 1mg before I was pregnant i was taken Xanax. Ive been taking it since I was 12wks im now 22wks 2days and she is very healthy. I hope this helps!! If you have any questions you may message me. good luck
