I have bipolar disorder,depression,anxiety,and ptsd. i switched from zoloft to celexa to deprakote er to prozac to laxapro. Didnt know celexa and laxapro are almost identical. bad call on my part. i wanted lexapro bc it helps with anxiety and the prozac was not working for that so insteada taking more than prescribed of the prozac i switched to lexapro. celexa made me have a seroius mental breakdown after a month of taking. and just the other day i found out the same for the lexapro. i slept three days straight through afterwards..is that normal? should i continue the lexapro? I need a mood stabilizer for my bipolar disorder and something for my anxiety and depression also. but im pregnant. im afraid to take a mood stabilizer. what should I do?
Lexapro n celexa took 4 a mnth Did the same, had a breakdown Slept 3days straight Continue lexapro?

When pregnant, the risks must be weighed against the benefits. Having "break downs" and not eating for three because you slept through them is not good for the baby either. I recommend you discuss your options with the obstetrician. Being aware that each drug is assigned a category by the FDA as to its likelihood of harming the fetus.
