Hi I was hoping someone can help me.I desided 6 days ago to get pregant and I went off of 20mg of Paxil.Now I am freaking out was it a good idea? To get pregant and get off Paxil. Should I have waited to talk to my doctor first?Now i am feeling what I think is withdrawal.And I may end up going back to being depressed.What am I going to do now if I did getting pregant?This would be my 3ed kid.My first was an ok pregant.But my 2ed.

Going off your medication "cold turkey" is usually not a good idea due to the sudden withdrawal reaction. If you have your medication perhaps you could restart it and yes please do talk to your physician.

Some of the medications are ok with pregnancy too so get back to feeling better and please be careful. I hate to hear you are having problems.

Hi, I agree...when you are on a medication like that you need to speak with your doctor before you go off of it and try to get pregnant. Even in the early stages of pregnancy it can still be in your system and affect the baby. If you already have two kids and have had that much trouble maybe you should reconsider getting pregnant again(if your not already) until you feel your a little more stable in your life...just some advice..hope all goes well for you & have a great day!

I can relate to making rash decisions that sound great one minute and not so great the next! I would suggest though, the same as the previous posts-when meds are involved, def. consult your doc! He might be able to ween you down and meet with you regualarly to make sure all is well before and after the meds and pregnancy. Your hormones, emotions and anxiety will be going bonkers with a change in meds and especially with pregnancy(as you can already attest to!) Take your time and plan it out with your doc! And I know that is so much easier to say to someone else than do yourself if your anything like me!
