Our expert says:
I would guess that thew psychiatrist you quote was suggsting that you remain on Cipramil permanently as you have had 2 or 3 significant episodes of Depression, which have responded well to the drug. If you are considering deliberately stopping contraception and having another baby, the best thing would be to see your psychiatrist again for a fresh assessment and specific advice based on the results of that --- the possible risks of cipramil may not be high, but need to be weigghed against the risks of severe depression recurring untreated during the pregnancy.
