Konopin While Pregnant

Brandi - April 24

I do know this is a big no no but,I have been on it for 7 years and the doctor has taken me down to .25 twice a day. He says not to worry about it. I was told I could never get pregant so I didnt worry about it much. Im so scared because Im trying to cut down on that and stop smoking (down to 2or 3 a day) and work a full time demanding job in the medical field. If anyone else is dealing with pregnancy and medication, email me. Let me know your thoughts. PLEASE dont comment on the smoking because I know, Iknow, i know!!! [email protected]

hey brandi, I'm 8 weeks today (4/25)... I have also been on Klonopin for 7-8 years and also Celexa. My doctor told me that I can continue to take Celexa, but not Klonopin. However, she said that if I NEED it, they will put me back on. So, she told me this two weeks ago and I have cut back from 2mg/day to 1mg/day. I will try to cut down to 0.5/day after my appt. tomorrow, but it's hard. I notice a difference big-time and I am just finding rea__surance in her promise that they would put me back on it if I need it. I think you have cut back to a really low amount and should be fine (if you are feeling okay), but obviously always listen to your Dr. GL!!

Im so glad you emailed. I was really worried about this. Im 8 wks also and on .25, twice a day. My doctor says not to worry to much. I dont think I can go any lower on it. Im a mess.

I dont know why I put Jena as my name in the last post, maybe cuz, I was addressing you. Did you cut down at all?

brandi, i was taking 2mg a day and now I am down to 1mg, but as you are, i'm scared to cut back anymore - i'm feeling so drained and sick so that's the last thing i need to go without!

I think it will be okay. My doctor say he has had patients on Zanex (high doses) that have babies that are fine. We are on a low dose. Me max dose for Klonopin is 20mg. I cant imagin that though.
