Is anyone or was anyone on any anti-depressants and pregnant or had a baby? Which medication and did doctor say it was pretty safe? I just found out I'm pregnant and have been on meds for over a year and stopped taking them until I see my doctor next week. I feel horrible, sore, sick and in so much pain. The headaches are horrible and anxiety is pretty bad also.... I was taking prozac 80mg a day.... Any info would be greatly appreciated :)
2002 Carpal Tunnel Surgery, Plantar fasciitis, Migraines / Daily Headaches, 2005 Gastric Bypass surgery (200 lb weight loss), 2006 Hernia repair (due to wls), one week later complications and an emergency surgery Bowel obstruction, March 2008 another Hernia repair, chronic back and leg pain all over muscle pain (doctors say it's related to fast weight loss and loss of laxity in muscles etc, Nerve damage / pain in back legs and arms / hands, herniated discs and spinal stenosis in lower back, high blood pressure, anemia, constant throbbing/rushing/heartbeat sound in right ear(doctors have no idea what this is), anxiety and depression most likely related to chronic pain.

Have been on so many different medications! Currently 75mg Fentaynal patch, 600mgs Neurontin 3xday, Immitrex as needed, Avapro, Prozac 80 mgs, percocet for break through pain as needed, Skelaxin as needed, Zanaflex (at night to sleep and muscle Relaxer)

Hi Hopeless Girl,

I read in the other forum that you were going to call you previous PCP from where you lived before or perhaps go into a walk-in clinic.  Just wondering sweetie, if you did that?  You posted that back on 8/5.  A physician is your best person to discuss the drugs with as we are not professionals but I do not believe stopping your dose of med cold turkey is a good idea.

Please make that phone call or go into see someone in a walk-in clinic.

Keep us posted as to how your doing as we care.
