I was just wondering if anyone has any stories about taking benzos while pregnant, either yourself or someone you know. I keep wondering what is going to happen if I get pregnant and can't do without my xanax. I know I can get off my Lexapro, but I CANNOT quit both, I'm just not ready. I take a small dose, .5 mgs, and i only take them as needed, but that is usually 4 or 5 pills a week on a bad week, 1 or 2 on a good week.
Has anyone taken benzos through a pregnancy and had a healthy baby, OR has anyone taken them during pregnancy and had problems?
Yeah, I've heard that sometimes pregnancy eliminates anxiety, but I guess I am just preoccupied with the what-ifs. I also had a feeling people would respond with answers about how bad benzos are, etc, so that's why I specifically asked for firsthand experience, not just opinions. Hopefully people will pay attention to that!
My doctor said the same to me when I was pregnant with my 4th child so I took Paxil 25mg and Klonopin 0.5mg (twice a day) through the entire pregnancy my son is now gonna be 3 years old the end of this month and he is GREAT!
