I am new here and I have checked previous posts and I do see a lot of zoloft posts but mainly they are about how it affects the baby while breastfeeding.
I had my baby almost 13 months ago and started to feel severely anxious while driving (of all things to be anxious about). I am barely able to drive to work or even to the grocery store sometimes. I get in the car and sometimes have panic attacks. Most of the time I am able to get through my panic, but on occasion not.
Well anyway, I talked to my ob/gyn and discussed my anxiety with her and she prescribed zoloft for me. I am very hesitant to start taking it because my husband and I would like to start TTC in July. With my first pregnancy I didn't drink any caffeine or eat deli meat. I was very careful as to what I ate. I am very nervous to be taking something like zoloft during pregnancy.
Did anybody take zoloft while pregnant? I did talk to my doctor and she tried to assure me that it is ok, but I am almost wondering if I should just wait until after the baby is born and just tough it out like I have been for most of the year. Because once I start taking it, I am not going to be able to just quit taking it once I find out that I am pregnant.
My doctor did refer me to a counselor which I am going to call tomorrow to set up an appointment. I am sure seeing somebody will help too.
