I was diagnosed with depression back in June of this year and have been taking Celexa once a day. I have also been going to some counseling and it's been determined that it's basically 12 years of grief from losing my mom to breast cancer in 2004 that's been compacted and covered up over the years, topped off with getting married and moving 400 miles away, losing both my grandparents, having a MC, and unrealized post-partum depression, that my body finally couldn't handle properly on its own anymore and started to shut down mentally. I feel so much better and have a much better outlook on everything since taking the medicine. I feel like I've finally dealt with my grief, and my counselor agrees as well. However, I'm leery about weaning off the medicines that I'll slip back to where i was before. We are contemplating trying for baby #2 in the Spring and I also plan on breastfeeding again. I have Paraguard, so there's less than 1% chance I'll get pregnant until I have it removed, so I'm not concerned about an unplanned pregnancy while still on the medicine. I am debating whether to start trying to wean myself off the medicine or not. One of the happiest times I can remember in the past 5 years was when I was pregnant with DD who will be 2 in a couple weeks, so I'm hopeful going off the medicines and hopefully conceiving shortly after will help keep me in a good place mentally. There haven't been any reports of problems while taking anti-depressants, but there hasn't been much research done, either. Has anyone here gone off anti-depressants before trying to get pregnant? Or is there anyone who stayed on medicine while you were pregnant and/or nursing? If so, please let me know how it went for you! I understand this is a decision I need to talk with my doctors about, but I wanted to hear your opinions and experiences, too!
