You should not take the Paroxetine, but do not stop without speaking to your doctor. There are similar medications you can change to. There are pregnancy specific vitamins available which have the right ingredients for pregnancy.

Best wishes

You can''t continuje with your usual vitamins as they are probably too high in vitamin A and might nothave enough calcium, magnesium or folic acid. Rather take a vitamin for pregnancy, and extra folic acid if necessary.
