Question

Cipralex

Gynae doc, ek sien dat jy op vragies oor Cipralex antwoord dat dit 'behoort' veilig te wees - is die veiligheid nog nie bewys nie? Ek het reeds 1 baba op 5 mnde verloor, en wil nie kanse vat om op Cipralex te bly indien daar enige moontlike newe effekte kan wees nie?

Most studies are with Prozac, but Cipralex is a similar drug. There is no increase in fetal abnormalities. SOme studies suggest a slightly higher miscarriage rate but others do not. If you take it in late pregnancy neonates have more breathing problems and jitteriness. This must all be weighed up against the risk of recurrence of depression if you stop it.
