I am 14 weeks pregnant and chose to go off of Lexapro when I found out I was pregnant. I am horribly depressed but have chosen to stay off of the Lexapro due to the possible affects on the fetus. However, I suffered post partum depression so severely with my first child and I have suffered depression much of my life and been on medication, that I have a huge chance of facing post partum depression again. My question is: Is there any risk on the fetus if my doctor places me back on the Lexapro for just the last month of my pregnancy so that it is in my system when the baby is born so that I can avoid post partum depression
