Lexapro, Paxil pregnancy

Posted by Jocelyn on July 7, 2003, at 15:28:06

Hello all,

My first time posting. I was on Paxil 10mg for a year or so for anxiety, then stopped a few months into my pregnancy in case of any risks to the baby. Well, anxiety returned full-force a few months later and my doc said I could return to Paxil (which worked great for me) or try Lexapro, which is newer and has fewer side effects. I decided to try Lexapro because the withdrawal from Paxil was pretty bad and I don't want to go through that again in the future. So now I've been on 5mg of Lexapro for a few days now.

I'm still worried about the baby though despite my doctor's assurances. Has anyone taken Paxil or Lexapro during pregnancy? And any comments on how the two compare in general?
