Anti-depressants &  Pregnancy

Hi there Doctor,

I am currently on Paxil 20mg. I can''t go without it as I get terrible mood swings.

I am planning to fall pregnant soon... Is it safe for the baby?

Thank you very much for your time.

No, Paxil is not ideal, but there are other similar antidepressants sich as Prozac and Cipramil which can be used in pregnancy.

Best wishes
