I am currently 21 weeks pregnant with number 3 and have hit a hole in my pregnancy. I have servere anxiety which causes insane insomnia, to the point I literally have no sleep for days on end because I'm so anxious. I am currently on lovan (fluoxetine) and Axit (mirtazapine) and have been for years, including throughout both previous pregnancies (of course on recommendation by my psychiatrist)
I just can't function without them. I am so so scared and a crying mess, everything in my life just seems so bad ATM - I feel my partner has brought this last episode on cause he just constantly stresses me out.
The last 2 nights I have had to resort to my back up supply of Valium to try and calm myself a little and I have had to take sleeping tablets (zopiclone) both nights just to get a bit of sleep. I know in an ideal world I would do everything I could first before resorting to taking these tablets but I am at desperate point and I don't want to end up back in hospital (was admitted to mental health ward last year for a week) that's how bad it gets
i don't even know what in asking here, maybe if anyone has gone through similar things? I am so scared I am harming my baby by taking these few tablets but if I don't I am at the point of wanting to end it all....
i habe 2 beautiful boys I need to look after and without sleep I cannot do that. I just cannot function without sleep. I am exhausted and I cannot stop crying.
my psychiatrist is on holidays ATM and the next available app he has is in February as he is a very well known psychiatrist and I trust him with everything. He has basically saved my life.
Ive been googling (silly me) about the risks of sleeping tablets and Valium during pregnancy in the second trimester and while it's not ideal to use them, if you cannot function with out then it should be ok, just not long term.
Has anyone else used sleeping tablets or Valium during pregnancy and was your baby ok?!
im so worried 😞😞😞
