I just wanted to give you hug !!! I am not preg. or trying YET, but I do want to this is what is keeping me from it - my anxiety - I am on Lexapro and Xanax, I know I should have them both out of my system when TTC but i am scared to stop everything, I think being preg. and having anxiety will be torture for me and I am scared to try.

If your afraid to try your ltting your anxiety run your life and one day you'll live to regret it, somepeoples anxiety goes away during pregnancy
Hi, I know how you feel! I have SUFFERED with anxiety for 6 years! I have tried hypnotherapy,behavior therapy, read books, counseling and finally meds. I was on prozac,seroquel,xanax,klonopin,effexor, and finally lexapro! I have tried it all and lexapro is really all that worked for me. I went off it before I got pregnant, I am dealing with anxiety very bad! constant, I hate being alone! I am thinking of trying zoloft witch is considered safe for pregnancy,I am still in counseling. I am 16 weeks pregnant. I also have really bad health anxiety. It is hard I know! just know that your not alone we are here to help you through this! and you will get through! We can support eachother because anxiety is terrible! it really is, it gets in the way of everything. we deserve to be happy and as your little one continues to grow so will your smile! :) Take care

my/junemom, I have never taken buspar. I have a very high tolerance due to past drug use when I was younger. xanax or klonopin has never done anything for me neither did ativan. My doc assured me about zoloft and so did my psych. it is also on my list of things safe to take as well as prozac. I didn't like prozac made me very sick. thanks, I will look more into it before taking it, I would never want to harm my child. :angel:
