it's so hard!
obviously no one would want to purposely do harm to their baby but there's no research.
the only thing my husband has found is that paxil is definitely not recommended but again he found people who took paxil through the whole thing and their babies were fine.
from the little research ive managed tonight (ie my husband researching while i freak out) is that Cymbalta is slightly different from an SSRI and its a SSNRI. i have no idea what that means.
seems like its a personal decision between the person and their doctor.
like i said im going to see an obgyn at the beginning of august so it will probably be #1 on my list of things i need info on.
heres a couple websites i found.
my husband found this thread on this forum where people talk about cymbalta and pregancyhttp://www.mothering.com/community/t/1265174/cymbalta-and-pregnancy
here is the website my psychiatrist recommended. its done my Mass General whcih is a big huge hospital here in Boston.http://www.womensmentalhealth.org/
also, i too, am PETRIFIED of post partum depression. already suffering from depression i wonder if we have a higher likelihood of it??? i dunno but it sounds terrifying.
