do they know you are pregnant?
Doctor wouldn't let you if it was dangerous. I don't think SSRIs are dangerous in pregnancy or nursing, unlike Anti-Psychotic medication. I knew someone who had to stop that when they were pregnant.
Agreeing with John, if they are aware it will be safe.
I am wrong it seems some are safer than others though, and the risk is a bit unknown... Make sure you tell your doctor and get all the support you can.
If you are in the UK, your local branch of mind should be able to help. They are brilliant.
Thanks everyone. I take Prozac. I took 20 with my first pregnancy and currently at 20 now, they think I should increase to 40. Scary because of all the unknowns surrounding my daughter's death.
Yes psych and therapist know I'm pregnant
Prozac/fluoxetine is probably one of the most prescribed drugs in the western world. If your doctors thought there was a significant risk, they wouldn't let you. So try to keep moving on and living your life.
My trust in the medical establishment is about zero. They also said I should vaccinate my daughter.
If you don't want her to get some really nasty diseases, it'd be worth considering...
That's a really tough topic, especially when you've lost a child because of it. I'm pro-vaccines but of course there can be severe side effects, but this can also happen when you're not vaccinated. So no perfect solution to this in my opinion. :/
I was pro vaccines as well.
Well she can't get any “nasty diseases” she died.
Sorry, didn't mean to bring you down. And I didn't mean to look down on you, if you interpreted it this way. I just think it's a topic without a right or wrong decision. Either way one decides can be the wrong way. Take care.
Sorry Sarah, I didn't mean to be insensitive. I misunderstood. Wishing you all the best.
Phew busy day Sarah. I could do with a swim
