| | Pregnant & Very Anxious
I found out I'm pregnant, it's a surprise! I have 3 kids already but they are all older. 16 13 & 11
I already have an anxiety disorder, but since I've been pregnant it's 100% worse. I made an appointment with an OB clinic and was seen by a Nurse, who told me she wanted me to go to Mental health. I went to Mental health, and they told me they have 1 doctor to prescribe medicine and he's a month out, that I need to see my primary doc. So I went to my primary doc, and he had to consult with an OB doc, they took me up from 20mg of ciltaopram to 40mg. It's been 5 days and I'm still extremely anxious.
Has anyone or is anyone taking an antidepressant while pregnant?
I've also been having shortness of breath, rapid heart beat and dizziness. It makes me feel horrible and I don't even want to get up from the couch.
Also super bad reflux which I was told to try Zantac 150 twice a day, didn't help so now they told me to try Pepcid AC 20mg twice a day.
I'm only 6 weeks. I seriously don't know how I'm going to make it full term like this. Taking all these meds makes me think about birth defects constantly.
Any support you guys could offer would be much appreciate.
