Our expert says:
This is somthing you need to discuss in consdierable detail with both your gynae and your psychiatrist. because of serious problems which arose with old drugs years back, we are understandably very cautious about possible problems. But there is no good evidence yet that antudepressants of lithium are likely to cause sigbnificant problems in babies if taken during pregnancy. The drugs may not be necessary during a particular pregnancy ( one of the reasons it's important to involve both gynae and shrink in these decisions ) --- but the impact of a mother with uncontrolled severe depression or a manic episode, could be worse than that of the drugs controlling such potential problems.
