Hi, my name is Quinn. I'm new here. I have been diagnosed as bipolar II for 4 years now and have had some bad lows and short but challenging highs. I am now 4 weeks pregnant after 2 losses and very anxious about the baby making it, the effect of the meds on the baby, and my bipolar going crazy now and/or after delivery. I also have a 4 year old son and husband to take care of and a mom with MS I care for full time and can't afford to loose it. Too many people depend on me. I am very attachted to my new baby, due Sep 3 and so scared of anything bad happening. I currently take 150mg of seroquel. Does anyone know if this is wise? Should I stop taking the meds? I am supposed to take 300mg but never worked up to that because of how drowsy it makes me and now that I know I am pregnant I refuse to take more than the 150mg but don't know how effective it will be. I am leaning towards stopping it. I would appreciate any imput. Thanks!
