Hi I was taking effexor xr when I was pregnant. My doctor switched me to wellbutrin sr. He told me that its a lot like Effexor but doesnt have all side effects. He said wellbutrin is safer in pregnancy. Effexor xr is a cla__s C drug and Wellbutrin is a cla__s B drug so its a bit better to take during pregnancy. He let me decide what I wanted to do and I chose the wellbutrin for one because it was safer and for 2 wellbutrin helps with stopping smoking. For me I cant tell you if the baby would of been healthy because I lost the baby due to an ectopic pregnancy August 13. I really hope this helps you!!
