Lexapro & pregnancy


Just wondering if anyone has gotten pregnant or is pregnant and is taking Lexapro or any other antidepressant? I am not preg. yet but I 'm planning. I have yet to talk to the doctor but i am planning to. Just wondered if anyone had any experience with this or have heard about birth defects associated with Lexapro. Thanx!!!

Re: Lexapro & pregnancy

I got pregnant while I was on Lexapro and I asked my dr if it was safe and he said it was. I didnt take it during my pregnancy just because I didnt want to take a chance. If something were to go wrong then I wouldnt be able to forgive myself.
