Conceiving while on Xanax?
My dr gave me a prescription to Xanax a couple years ago to help treat my anxiety. I've been taking .5mg 3 times a day to prevent anxiety for the past 2.5 years. Whether or not this is the appropriate method to treat my anxiety or not- it works, and that is besides the point.
My question is- if my wife and I decide to go for another baby, or if it happens 'miraculously' lol, is me being on Xanax any type of risk factor for the baby in any way?
Reasons I'm asking is that my wife wants me to stop taking Xanax, stop drinking, and any other medicines I take before we try for a baby, because she's worried it will effect the baby in a negative way.
This is something I plan to ask my doctor when I see him next, but I'd like to hear answers from more than one source.
