What Happens If I Fall Pregnant While Taking Serdep?

0 votes
My husband and I would like to try for a baby but I'm taking serdep for depression.  What will happen if I fall pregnant while taking serdep? Must I stop the medication before we start trying? Will it affect my health or the baby's health should I fall pregnant while still on the medication?  I'm also scared to stop my medication and have heard that one should rather wean onesself off it.  Is this true? What is the best way to do this?

It is best to consult your doctor first of your interest in conceiving a baby. Under your doctor's supervision, you may undergo a gradual discontinuation of the medication to avoid withdrawal or Discontinuation Syndrome. Getting pregnant while under this medication can cause birth defects. Ask your doctor the best options should you pursue your plans on conceiving to avoid complications.
