In reply to Going off Effexor to get Pregnant? Advice?, posted by 4peace on February 7, 2004, at 10:22:30
> First time I found this site. Lots of interesting comments. I went through a major episode, tried Zolof, Wellbutrin and then finally Effexor which worked like a dream. I do know that 24 hours if I accidently skip a dose, brings on nausia, headache, etc.
> Now we want to try to have a second child, but I am REALLY scared of going off Effexor, from the side effects, other drugs I might take and if it will be ok while pregant (Dr rec,s Zolof also while breastfeeding).
> Anyone out there been down this road or have some advice?
Please do not take Effexor when you are preg. I just had my baby in July of this past year and the doctors told me it was safe to take while preg and it was not. At all safe. My baby got dehydrated in the womb and had horrible withdrawl symptoms after he was born. He was failing to thrive and we almost lost him. Please please please do not take that med when preg! I went through ultimate hell with this.
