    Hi girls have suffered with depression in the past including post natal depression, im 16 weeks pregnant and just before i found out i was pregnant (planned pregnancy)i was going back to my doctor to speak to him about gettting another prescription, however im now 16 weeks into my pregnancy and spoke to my consultant today and she told me its ok to take ciprimil while pregnant and breastfeeding, ive googled this and theres not a lot of evidence to back it up, im meeting with a mental health specialist tomorrow to discuss the same, my partner is not keen on me taking tablets while pregnant he wont even take paracatemol when he has a headache, so im up in the air at the moment, just wondering if anyone took it and was there any side effects to the baby??



    Congrats on your pregnancy

    I think the best thing to do is talk to your mental health specialist tomorrow. It is ok to take some anti depressants during pregnancy according to my GP. I spoke to him about it when we were thinking of trying for another baby. If I remember correctly he said that Prozac was safe but then you have the change over period and you could lapse when changing meds.

    Its better to be a happy, stable mam on meds than the total opposite which is no good for anybody concerned.

    Good luck tomorrow and hope you get the info you need.
