Anyone suffered from anxiety/panic attacks (diagnosed by psychiatrist) during pregnancy? Were you on medication? Can share your experience? Thank you.
i was having lots of panic attacks, feeling anxious, fast heart beat, insomnia, loss of appetite which almost caused me to fall into depression with my 1st pregnancy. it's mostly because my morning sickness was so bad. i was prescribed medication to help me sleep and calm down, forget the name already as it's in 2009.
the medicine helped me alot.. though everyone around me advise me to cut dosage as they're concern for my baby.. but i managed to cut down and stop at 7months as my morning sickness eases around that time. stopped seeing the psychiatrist at 7months too.
so you should let your gynae know and see what he/she advises.
I also got anxiety disorder before im preggy.
I was taking Cymbalta 30mg daily from Dec 10 until apr 11. Stopped totally because that time I was preggy (but later miscarriaged at 8 weeks).. however since the stoppage of medication, i can feel that it is slowly creeping back.. i didnt continue with the medication after that...
Now that Im preggy again, i think it just make it worse.. as usual.. everyone will tell me not to eat.. blar blar blar.. but really suffering quietly... My psychatrist did tell me he can give me a medicine that is ok for preggy ladies, but i did not get it yet cos hubby say wait until if i really cant take it...
so just want to know if any mummies got the same situation as me.. then maybe can advise me if i should take medication.. cos its affecting my appetite lately.. can feel im more tense than before im preggy.. thanks.
