weaning off Zoloft while pregnant

I would REALLY like to wean off of Zoloft...I have been on it for a few years but I started to wean 6 months ago and went from 75 to 50 mg/day. What do you all think about weaning during pregnancy? I want to go off of it more now that I am pregnant. Is there an easy way to do it? I don't want all the crazy side effects that I know can happen when you go off meds....I am scared to go off it, only for fear that I will go through that awful transition period...I would love your input. Julie

Re: weaning off Zoloft while pregnant

I've never had to do it, but my mom has done this with similar drugs and I'd say it's a great idea to do for your pregnancy if you're up to it. If you do it slow enough (couple months), you shouldn't have any trouble. Ask your doctor.
