Thanks! I always have my eyes open for info on this subject.

The scary thing for me is that due to my age (40 next year) I would be a higher risk pregnancy anyway, regardless of meds, no meds, depression, etc.

Although I have had recurrent depression in the past, I just don't think I could take the risk of meds, especially combined with my age. And I do have a really good support network now and am working hard in therapy.

What I wonder is, when I am married, should I stop taking meds as soon as I am even thinking of getting pregnant, or, as soon as I find out I am pregnant? It seems it would make more sense to first slowly taper down BEFORE, right?

Or I could decide not to have children.

Or, I could decie to try, and not be able to, due to my age.

it's very confusing!
