I am posting because I just found out that I might be pregnant. I am on zoloft and seroquel and I am really worried about it but I really do not think that I could survive going off of these drugs I would be sick and panicy the whole nine months I really do not think going off of them could be an option. Does anyone know of anybody who was is this situation and what did the end up doing? I have severe anxiety disorder when I don't have meds I am really scared because If I take the meds I will have anxiety about whether or not the baby will be ok what should I do I am scared of making the wrong choice.Also if anything would happen to the baby my husband would in the back of his mind blame me. sad
150mg zoloft,50mg seroquel,1mg ativan and 25mgtoprol(beta blocker)

Rhonda, first things first, talk to your doc, he/she is the only one who can answer whether or not it is safe for you to take meds while you're pregnant. And just to give you some hope if you are pregnant, I felt better when I was pregnant (must have to do with hormones) than I have ever felt (without meds), I did get back on once I was done breast feeding, just didn't want to chance falling back into panic/depression. I wish you the best of luck, please talk with your doctor and find out the facts...Hugs, Grizabella

P.S. I just want to say that I do agree that just because I was fine while I was pregnant doesn't mean anyone else will be...just my experiance..Grizabella

Hello. when i got pregnant both times my panic attacks vanished. I stopped taking meds as soon as i found out
that i was pregnant and somehow i was ok. The only think i got them back after the baby was born both times.
Try going off. Pregnancy does wonders to us and almost always we feel better while pregnant.
Best of luck to you.
