: : : I would like information about taking celexa while being pregnant. I am in my first trimester. Please advise if I should continue taking it. My doctor has said it was ok but I want a second opinion.

: : >I would like to know the same thing. I've just begun celexa but am worried that if I get pg, how risky is it? I've found out that Celexa is a class "c" drug which means they haven't tested it on human pregnancies only on animals and there were some diverse affects. I would definitely get a second opinion.

: HEY!!! Me too. I just found out I'm 6 weeks pregnant....its the weekend, so I can't call my doctor. I'm a little worried! Okay...alot worried. I don't want to loose my baby!

In regard to everyone's concerns about Celexa and Pregnancy, I am trying to get pregnant and spoke to my obgyn's office about celexa and pregnancy; they told me to give it a month and stop taking the medication, however if I were pregnant now still taking celexa they say that it would probably be O.K. and that it's hard to give a definate answer because it is such a new drug and is a class "C" drug. My doctor to is extremely "anti-anything" with her pregnant patients which I find to be wonderful in her and glad she is my OBGYN. I hope I didn't scare or hurt anyone with this news, it seemed as I researched this the doctor who prescribed me the pills told me that it would probably be o.k. to keep taking the pills. So i got two opinions and I'm choosing my OBGYN's word.
