Is taking citalopram during pregnancy safe?
I was on 20mg of citalopram last year for 6 months, I slowly weaned off in October of last yr. I was doing great, now I am 8 weeks pregnant and im beginning to feel the symptoms of depression and I am scared it will get worse but I am also scared to go back on the medication since now I also have to think of baby. I was feeling fine until this past Monday when I went in for ultrasound, and dr brought up my depression history and mentioned I was at higher risk of post partum depression, all of a sudden I started feeling depressed again. I would like to hear about women's experience who have taken this medication throughout their pregnancy?
