- nordette, seroquel, bipolar disorder, pregnancy
What should I do? We want to get pregnant, but I am currently on Serequel (25mg), Epitec (200mg) and welbutrin (XL 150mg)
We are also trying to get pregnant, I stopped drinking Nordette about 2 months ago after I've been on it for 11 years.
Should I Stop drinking all this medication now and should I not use them at all during pregnancy?
I am Bi-polar with rapid cycling, and I use the serequel to sleep with and now I am scared I don't want to harm the baby but I am also scared just to stop using these medication over a period of time.
Please I need advice
You should make an appointment with your provider to discuss the medicines you are taking.
The safety of Seroquel, Wellbutrin and Epitec during pregnancy is uncertain. The may cause harm to the fetus.
You and your doctor will need to discuss what the best option for you is. It may be best to avoid these medicines completely or to temporarily switch to different medicines.
Hi, You have already gotten the very best advice you can get. Go see the doctor who gave you these medications. Make an appoinment ASAP! Let you doctor know about your concerns. I wouldn't stop any medications, but I would let whoever answers the phone and makes appointments at your doctor's office how important it for you to get in top see him/her in a very timely manner. I wish you the best of luck! Fall Queen
I would like to know if you went to your doc and what advice he/she gave you?
Im on the same meds as you and would also like to get pregnant but worry if any damage will be done to the baby etc.
Look forward to your reply.
