I had to stay on Celexa during pregnancy, with both of my children. I was a mental health risk and it was safer for my baby and myself to stay on them. My children had no problems and are perfectly healthy. My son is 2 1/2 yrs and daughter is 7 months. They are both extremely bright and social. Neither of them were premature and there were no seizures. If I had a choice I wouldn't have been on any prescriptions, but the benefits outweighed the risks. I was on a small dose of 20 mgs a day.

So glad to hear that you were able to continue to take your medication to keep yourself healthy and that your children were both born healthy. Mother's shouldn't have to be faced with a decision to continue to take their medication or not. We need safer drugs for both mother and child.

It is not advisable for a person to take anti depressant medication such as zoloft while pregnant because this can cause several serious side effects which may endanger the life of the baby.

According to this article, , taking antidepressant drugs during pregnancy is a case to case basis; however, usage is strongly discouraged unless there is an absolute need. MAOIs are known to cause birth defects and are not generally safe for pregnant women.

Btw, did you know that pregnancy is one of the leading causes of pelvic organ prolapse? The usual method to repair it was to use a surgical mesh. Over the recent years, there were complaints against the side effects of the said device. If you believe you were a victim of this device, follow this link to know your legal options.

I have used for about 3 years and find their products to be reliable and speedily delivered. The Support team are very promt and helpful in solving any issues that arise,caused by my errors not the company's. I was a little sceptical initially about buying generic products rather than brand names. However, the Mens' Health products I have bought have been equally as efficatious as the brand names at a fraction of the cost.

I ordered from for the first time and i definitely will again. Customer service is great! I inquired about my order as i had the wrong zip code on my mailing address and their customer support helped me right away. They were very helpful and also when you have any questions, they email you right back with answers. I would recommend them highly as they deliver what they promise!

I've been on Effexor from only one week but am cautiously very optimistic. Prior to this I was on citalopram but still feeling very low and sleeping poorly, feeling like I needed to be in bed 12-16 hours a day. Now I am waking naturally after only 8 hours sleep and finding it much easier to concentrate at work. I can hardly believe it is working so quickly but I feel so much better. I've had no side effects.
