Antianxiety Medications and Pregnancy


I'm a newbie to this board

Anyways, I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with taking antianxiety medications while pregnant? I know there will be a risk-benefit assessment but I'm wondering if anyone knows what the actual risks are etc. and whether any medications are considered "safer" than others. My undestanding is only one medication has been approved for use in pregnancy which is an "old-school" medicine which I had never heard of. Has anyone else dealt with this and what was the outcome? Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Antianxiety Medications and Pregnancy

I was on Paxil when I got pregnant and my doctor got me to slowly wean off of it. He didn't say what the risks were, he just said there were risks and that I should be off of it.

Hope that helps
