Can you take anti-depressants such as Zoloft while pregnant and what if you took them before you found out you were pregnant?

You need to read the leaflet to find out for definite or speak to your doctor. Taking medication which your not allowed to during pregnancy can cause birth defects or miscarriage.

No it is NOT ok to take Zoloft or other anti-depressants while pregnant. They cause all sorts of birth-defects and should be avoided. My wife was prescribed Zoloft while she was pregnant because of her mood swings and hormone levels going out of wack so she was acting really horrible. Well the doctor prescribed her Zoloft and now my son has a heart murmur and has very very bad violent outbursts and other strange behavior and it's like it's not even him when he is doing it. He is only 2 years old as of march 16th 2011. Now that all these stories are popping up of people having the same problems with their children for taking it while they were pregnant is starting to freak me out. I don't want him to have to go through life with these problems. We didn't understand why or where he was getting all this from and well now we know.

He took Propofol, he also took antidepressants (Zoloft) and Paxil for anxiety. The autopsy results show that apart from the Propofol, the only other substances found in his system were Lidocaine (used to numb injection sites) and Ephedrine.

i drank a lot before I found out I was pregnant, the day I actually found out I had alcohol in my hand. My child had hydrocephalus, however, it wasn't caused my drinking, and it went away at 38 wks.

it depends on how many months pregnant you are and how the nurse found out. If the student told the nurse that she was pregnant and she wanted to get an abortion before her parents found out, the nurse would be held responsible for getting the abortion set up.

All that is known is that she had missed her period for five days before realising.

No because the pill is just estrogen. I was eight weeks along before I found out I was pregnant and the whole time I continued to take my birth control pill. The baby was healthy. ( I spotted and thought it was my period, that's why I was so far before I found out!)

Probably, but why take these two together? In other words, on my Ritalin information sheet, it says not to take zoloft (that's sertraline, right?) with it. Yet, my doctor prescribed it and apparently, doctors (generally) seem to love to prescribe zoloft with stimulants. But many of us have found that zoloft cancels the uplifting effects (for example, in the case of Ritalin with zoloft). I have never tried zoloft with Provigil, which is not a stimulant per se. Per my experience, I can't see why you would need an anti-depressant with Provigil, which for me, was very mood uplifting. But that's me, and I am more in the anxiety and ADD/HD category than depression. Upshot: I will never try zoloft again, period!. But if you really love zoloft, maybe try the combo after reading the contraindications first, and/or asking a psy-doctor or neurologist.

No, at least nothing can be found that indicates that she is pregnant.

Yes. Before I knew I was pregnant I just couldn't stand smoking anymore and one day just quit. Then about 5 days later found out I was pregnant.

User Avatar

first before you become pregnant learn how to spell it , it is very unlikely that you would be pregnant if the urine tests were negative , impossible if the blood tests were negative

It depends if the sperm found the egg. If it didn't then she's not pregnant. If it is she's been pregnant since the time the sperm found the egg.

When Jamie found out she was pregnant, she was really shocked. Her parents also found out and got mad so they yelled at her.

Yes, you can. In fact folic acid can be found in many vitamin complex' products like Natural Wealth's Prenatal. It's taken before you get pregnant and , also during lactating.

In pregnant women they are often found in the placenta (the organ which connects the baby's umbilical cord to the uterus).
