ann, Yep, I was on effexor when I was pregnant. No doctors or studies showed too much information about it either way. I had an 11 yr old daughter and was not really planning on another baby when I got pregnant. We all thought it best to stay on the effexor during the pregnancy. My hubby said I was such a "good sport" during my 9 months. I do drink alot of beer and I do smoke ciggerettes. I gave it all up during those 9 months. The only thing I didnt give up was the Effexor. I had no problem giving up smokes, and no problem giving up the beer...the baby was fine...9 pounds 3 ounces and beautiful. I doubt that I could have done it without the effexor. Giving up the effexor,however has been rougher than quitting smoking, quitting the drinking, or pretty much anything else in my life I have ever done. I have been off it for like a month now, after being on it for 7 years, and the physical side effects are pretty much gone. THANK GOD!!!! I am now dealing with a "rush of emotion" is what I like to call it. 7 years with a lack of emotion, and now BAM all my emotions are pouring out. I can only hope its from the withdrawl. I hope and pray that its withdrawl. If it continues much longer, I will have to consider another anti-depressant, and that alone makes me depressed!!
