Pregnancy and Lamictal/Seroquel/Celexa

Hi gals,

I am thinking about becomming pregnant again with my second child. I have a question though. During my last pregnancy, I tool an antidepressant. (Celexa) Since stopping breast feeding, I have been on a new regimen of meds. to treat a mood disorder that ranges between low level depression with a healthy dose of anxiety and insomnia. My primary doctor has put me on a combo of Lamictal/Seroquel/Celexa and it seems to work well. Now that I am thinkiong about being pregnant again, I want to at least get off of the Lamicatal and Seroquel as I have just been reading about them online and it scared the heck out of me.

Are any of you who are pregnant now on meds for this type of condition? (it is technically describes as a sort of low-level bipolar) If so, what are you on? I am particularly interested in treating the anxiety and insomnia.

I only take a low dose of Zoloft for anxiety. I plan on upping it as soon as my daughter is born. I am not sure about bi-polar but I heard prozac is safe also.Have you talked to your doctor about it? Don't go cold turkey! I did in early pregnancy and I hit rock bottom with my depression and anxiety.It was awful. Check with your doctor first...depression is no fun! Good luck!
