Depends on which AD you are taking. There are plenty of AD options if the one you are taking is not considered safe. I am sure your doctor can advise you better than anyone here. Best wishes & happy pregnancy:)

There is always a way to get off of an anti depressant....talk with your doc about it because just stopping is not good for you...there are those that are safe during pregnancy...

There IS a way to get off of them or replace them with something safe. It involves good communication with your doctor, OB and psychologist. It is the people who would rather us a pill to cure every ill that cannot get off of them. Learning coping techniques is more than half the battle with depression and anxiety. But all too oftem people only want the pills to fix it. I have been on and off anti-depressants for several years. I know the signs to look for and I have an awesome psychologist who works with me to teach me coping techniques. If your brain chemicals are just that off that you need the meds you still need to learn coping techniques and work with your doctor and psychologist.
