I saw this on the news yesterday and thought I would share it with all of you who are or were on paxil while pregnant. http://www.thewbalchannel.com/healtharchive/5493283/detail.html

Thanks for the information. I actually took Paxil during my pregnancy, but only in the third trimester. For me, I felt the need outweighed the risks. My son is fine.

Im just shocked that they finally did studies it. Glad to know your son came out good and yes i do believe the needs sometimes do outweigh the risks. =)

i was actually taking lexapro before my pregnancy, but stopped b/c my OB told me that it could slow down the baby's development. he said it was a very touchy situation and it just depended on how bad i needed the medication. we decided that i could wait until after the pregnancy to resume taking it, but for many people the benefits do outweight the risks.
