I've read several posts on this board and have seen that many of you took Zoloft while pregnant. My fiance and I were not TTC but we just got a BFP a few days ago. I had been on Zoloft for about 6 weeks when my psychiatrist switched me to Prozac. I had been taking the Prozac for almost a month when I found out I was pregnant. I immediately asked my dad, who is a doctor, if I should stop the Prozac. He told me no, to continue it and discuss with my OB when I see him next week. However, my psychiatrist told me to absolutely stop taking it (cold turkey!) because there is new research that SSRIs can be teratogenic and cause chromosomal mutations. I could find no evidence or new research on my own and based on what my dad told me and stories of others I have read here using an SSRI is not bad and that most doctors recommend tapering off before the third trimester but that doing that isn't even totally necessary.
Sorry to be so long winded and I am absolutely going to discuss this with my OB but I wanted to see if others here had any advice or a similar experience. This is my first pregnancy and my psychiatrist has me really freaked out! TIA!
