I'm sure this subject has been addressed in your forum before, but I couldn't find a thread when I searched. If anyone has a thread already about
this that they could post, I would be most thankfull...
What anti-depressants, if any, can you take while you're pregnant?
I'm not pregnant yet, but I really want to start a family soon. Trouble is, I'm finally at a point with my crohns disease where I think I may need to talk to a professional about
getting on some anti-depressant or anti-anxiety meds. I'm just so tired of being scared of what my body is going to do all the time... I think I'm physically healthy enough, but I don't know if I'm mentally healthy enough! Being pregnant would make me even more scared... despite how badly I want to start a family.
I've had crohns disease for years, but I've never seen a counselor, or been treated for the anxiety and depression it causes in my life. I'm wondering if maybe I can make it another nine months or so, so as not to interfere with any potential baby's health...
I'd appreciate any thoughts or opinions on the subject...
