Have any of you guys taken meds for anxiety, depression, or BPII during pregnancy, if so what?

Before I decided to get pregnant, my OBGYN put me on 50 mg of zoloft. When I found out I was pregnant, I went off of it. I actually did very well until about 6 months into the pregnancy and started having panic/anxiety attacks. He put me back on zoloft, 50 mg and gave me Xanax .25mg, but only like 5 pills to get through it until zoloft kicked in. Of course I only took 1 xanax cuz I was nervous about it effecting him. My son is just fine. Good luck to you. There are those out there that know exactly how you feel, and I am one of them. You will get through it. It's tough as nails, but be strong! Talk to your doctor about maybe being able to take something in a low dose.
