Hi everyone, I am new to this board. I am 33 years old and I am 6 months pregnant. I have suffered with anxiety and panic attacks since my father passed away about 8 years ago. When I got pregnant with my son who is 6 years old now the anxiety and panic went away untill 3 months after delivery. I have been going to counseling and have been put on a lot of different medication's that did not help me at all (SSRI's ect.). I was put on Xanax about 4 years ago and that was the only thing that helped. When I got pregnant with my daughter who is almost 9 months I was having very bad panic attacks and anxiety so my theripist wanted me to stay on the xanax even though my OB doctor didnt agree. I was taking 1 1/2 mg. a day through out the whole pregnancy with her and she was healthy with no problems. Well now that I am pregnant again I have had horrible anxiety all day and occasional panic attacks. My theripist wants me to take 1 mg. 3 times a day and a 4th if I need to. I havent been able to do that because I am so worried about the baby. I have only been taking 1 mg. in the morning and 1 at night but during the day i am suffering so much with anxiety. Well I guess what I wanted to know is if there is anyone that has taken the same dosage as me while being pregnant and the baby was fine. My theripist seems to think that having anxiety and panic all the time is much more stress on the baby then taking the medication. Sorry this is so long and thank you in advance for any help.
