Hi there. I've been married for six and a half years. We have two children, but we're not finished. However, I am now taking an antidepressant and an antianxiety for the panic disorder that I have been struggling with my entire life. My doc said that he wanted to treat me for about two years and then he would try and wean me off of the meds. He also said that 2/3 of the time, it comes back, in which case I would probably have to be on meds for the rest of my life. I'm inclined to believe this because I've dealt with this my whole life and probably shoul've been on meds when I was very young. Now though, I am ready to have another baby, as my youngest is over two years old and we want six children. (We can't wait too many years between each one with that many!) So my question is, has anyone taken meds while being pregnant and how has that affected the baby and the pregnancy. Good or Bad, I want to know. My pharmicist and my shrink both say that it is safe to take the meds during pregnancy, but who really knows? I wonder about the long term affects, maybe twenty years from now.
