Anxiety & Panic Attacks — The Bump
Postpartum Depression

Anxiety & Panic Attacks

I would like to start by saying that my anxiety rarely flares up...I don't take a medication every day and only use a "rescue drug" when needed (maybe 3 times a year). For the last week I have been having A LOT of palpitations (I have MVP) for the past week and last night I got freaked out and had a full on panic attack which hasnt happened in YEARS! I couldn't take my rescue medicine because it's not safe while pregnant (im almost 20 weeks) so I had to go to the ER...the doctor recommened going on something everyday until I complete my pregnancy. I was just curious what you ladies use and if you have any advice. This is my second child and I didnt have any flare ups while I was pregnant with DD.

  • Pregnancy made my anxiety much worse. I started taking lexapro during this last pregnancy, and was so glad I did. Got my anxiety under control, and helped during the postpartum period too.
