I need some help with an issue. I am almost 7 Wk pregnant and taking Lovan 20mg (Prozac). I have been given mixed information. My GP says to stay on the Lovan for my mental health ( I get anxiety and depression mild to moderate ) I called a pharmacist at the Women's hospital and was told studies show no significant risk to baby.
Then I go on the net and there's studies showing there could actually be risks of deformities like skull and limb shortening, autism, (Text deleted by Moderator), heart defects to name a few. Now I'm so scared.
I can't wait till my next appointment. I think I'll stop the Lovan altogether ( wean down as of tonight). I think I can manage for 8 months or so. I am just worried that damage may have already occurred to the baby and I'm petrified. I don't think I will be able to cope with disabled child or the guilty.
Has any one out there been in a similar situation?
Thanks in advance for your support
