I have general anxiety disorder.
I was on 1 and a half mgs of Klonopin and 10 mgs of Busbar (both meds taken once a day) with my last pregnancy.
My son is now 18 months old and was born beautiful and perfectly healthy! NO cleft palet or face issues, NO sleep apnea, NOTHING.
I saw a couple of doctors that did NOT want me Klonopin, stating it said in their book that the medicine is D class drug. A is safest...like vitamins, B is Tylenol, Busbar, etc., then you have C, D...and I guess F class.
BUT I saw a specialist that deals with high risks pregnancies and people on all sorts of medications, and she said Klonopin would be fine for the baby and wrote all of my prescriptions.
I even got to breast feed with my son on both of these medications, AFTER the hospital talked with TWO pediatricians and an OBGYN. They said I could breast feed as long as he did not show any signs of being lethargic from it and he never did.
I am currently 5 months pregnant with number two,
and on the same dosage and meds. I will try and remember to post how her health is after she is born.

I was told it is safer to be calm with the baby and take these meds, than be a nervous wreak.

I hope this brings some reassurance for others...
really more studies should be done on pregnant women and medications.
