    Default Stop cipramil while pregnant now starting

    Hi ladies I'm almost 12 weeks and I was on cipramil (anti depressant) 40mg and dropped to 20m and the past week I stopped all together. I'm definitely feeling it and was scared it would hurt baby so I stopped.
    Withdrawals are so bad I am going back on. I need to be in it but now I'm scared I have done harm by playing with my dose!

    I am going back to doc next Friday but in mean time has anyone done this? I feel stupid for going off it now. Feel like my head is about to explode..

    I was on this but eased off prior to getting pregnant. Definitely not a good idea to go cold turkey...need to be weaned off. Best to see doc and have a chat. Some anti depressants are better and considered safer than others to be on while pregnant. Best of luck ☺

    Like Tinkers said, don't go off them cold turkey. I was on 100mg of Zoloft when I found out I was pregnant with dd3. I weaned off them with doctor's permission and dd3 is a very healthy 5 month old...glad to see you are going to th dr soon.

    I wouldn't thinkso. Going off your medication cold turkey does more harm to you with the side effects. I've done it before and it's not pleasant as you know. Are you on a pregnancy multivitamin?

    You wouldn't feel kicks at 12 weeks. Too early.

    Yeh I know that's why I said I can't tell if baby ok because I can't feel kicks at 12 weeks.
