I had a doctor for prenatal care that prescribed me medications while being on zoloft and told me it was safe and that i need not worry about the baby he would be fine and that there were no dangers in taking the medications together.
First of all is your baby ok?
second what meds did he/she prescribed knowing you were on zoloft where?
Where you on zoloft while you got pregnant and did you continue to use it, and did you inform your doctor you were taking it while being pregnant?
Well I truly hope your baby was born healthy with no problems whatsoever.
But I think you should know the following:
Zoloft and Pregnancy: An Overview
Zoloft(sertraline hydrochloride) is a pregnancy Category C medicine, meaning that Zoloft could potentially cause harm to your unborn child. This is especially true during the third trimester of pregnancy.
Zoloft and Pregnancy Category C
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) uses a pregnancy category system to classify the possible risks to a fetus when a specific medicine is taken during pregnancy. Pregnancy Category C refers to medicines that have not been studied in pregnant humans but do appear to cause harm to the fetus in animal studies. Also, medicines that have not been studied in any pregnant women or animals automatically are given a pregnancy Category C rating.
