Hi Bobby-
This may be a question best answered by your doctor or OBGY.
You can also look up the antidepressant and find out approximately how long it stays in your blood stream after you quit taking it.

Of course, yes ask your OB/GYN and of course it's always best to take no meds while pregnant but, some antidepressants are prescribed during pregnancy. It's all in how you feel off your medication. Some women get even more depressed bc of the hormones and need to be on a medication. There are certain ones that are very dangerous for the baby and baby has breathing issues when born but, there are a few that are in the safer side.
