Re: prozac and pregnancy

I took Prozac while pregnant.
My Dr. said although the risks werent known, he would rather me be on it, than unstable and pregnant.
My daughter is amost 7, I dont think it has harmed her, but I guess it would be more down the road before we could tell. ( I also have/had severe OCD)

Re: prozac and pregnancy

DId you notice if pregnancy made OCD worse, due to hormones or something?

Re: prozac and pregnancy

its now quite common for anxiety or OCD sufferers to take antidepressant meds during pregnancy, several studies indicate no harm to mother or baby, alhough the babies seem to go thru withdrawl symptoms after birth

however, sometimes being pregnant stops all anxiety and panic attacks, and since OCD is caused by anxiety, perhaps being pregnant may also stop OCD.

any thoughts??

you may need to find a doc who approves as some docs dont

Re: prozac and pregnancy

I didnt notice any thing different, as far as
OCD, when I was pregnant. My daughter was colicy as a newborn, but I didnt connect it with the Prozac. ( never thought she might be withdrawing from it,.... scratches head....)
