I recently posted my difficulty getting off Zoloft. With the idea in mind of trying to conceive a second child, have an appointment with the GP who prescribed the antidepressant to me (after I was diagnosed with Crohn's this past summer) to get help tapering down from the drug. My question is, is it dangerous for me to try to become pregnant before I am completely free of the drug?
Also, I had a terrible time post partum last time, is there any particular antidepressant that is recommended for late pregnancy or for post partum if one wishes to nurse?
I would not post these medical questions here if I had much faith in my GP. I get the feeling he just blurts out whatever comes to mind first. I'm on a small island and my options for "shopping around" are limited, so I'm looking to acquire as much anecdotal info as possible.
Thank in advance, Jamie
