I was taking 20mg flouxetine. I stopped taking them when I found out I was pregnant. I'm now 26 wks along and my symptoms have came back harder. At my appointment earlier this week my dr. Chose not to put me back on the flouxetine and instead has prescribed me wellbutrin to try.

Hey taytum,

It really is a suituation of whether the benefits outweigh the risks. The effects on the baby seem to increase with antidepressant use during the third trimester. For more reading on the topic go to:
