HI there I also wanted to let you know you are not alone.I suffer from depression and anxiety attacks but they are under control since I've been on xanax and serzone which has been years.I went through my pregnancy on meds very scared :eek: I can't even tell you how scared I was that something would be wrong with my little girl or that she would go through withdrawls.I talked to many doctors about being on the meds my ob doctor wasn't thrilled about it he wanted to me to talk more to my family doctor since he's the one that perscribed them and has been dealing with it keep in mind I started anxiety attacks when I was 15 and now I'm 27 so it has been along time.My doctor said the positves outweighed the negatives and he felt I was better on the meds.Let me tell you I know not everyone is the same but ounce I got past my first trimester I felt great!no depression no anxiety how weird I felt better being pregnant then not.I delivered my daughter November 18th and she was as healthy as can be very content no withdrawl symptoms I thank god for that everyday.Not alot of people agreed with me taking xanax while pregnant but you have to do what you have to do to feel well talk to your doctor about it.I'm not sure if your on meds I don't think you mentioned it.One other thing I suffered from a little post partum depression so being on the meds made it easier.Don't get me wrong I'm not trying to push medication on you some people can deal with anxiety without them I couldn't my attacks were to bad.Good luck to you and if you need to talk I'm hear your not alone. :wave:
