Re: Paxil and Pregnancy-Official warnings!
I was going to respond to this thread this morning, but thought I should think about it first. I have thought about it and come up with the same answer. I don't think, for any reason, anyone should take the chance of having a baby while on these medications, or in withdrawal. There are situations where it cannot be helped, and god willing the child will not be born with problems. Many have been born healthy happy babies, some have not been. The ones who didn't fall into the 'lucky' category suffer horribly, and some die.
Everyone should have the option of having children. But in planning a pregnancy parents should ensure a healthy pregnancy, one cannot do that on medications. That is why the warnings are in place. I just don't get how one could make this decision knowing the risks.
