I am 16 weeks pregnant and have had many sleepless nights and depression about the pregnancy. I just recently went off geodon for my bipolar disorder and my moods and thoughts have gotten worse. My Dr prescribed me latuda to take to help with some sleep and my mood but I'm nervous the baby Will be have withdrawal after delivery. I'm stuck to make a very hard decision. My well being is important but so is the health of my unborn baby. I've even been prescribed xanax for my anxiety and feel bad when I take it but it helps.
I've never had withdrawal symptoms from Latuda, now the getting back on it, those first 2-3 weeks are bad. Latuda has a category B label because there is not enough data to say that it's bad during pregnancy, but they can't say it's safe either. Newer drug, more information is needed, until then it will remain as a category B unfortunately. I just don't understand the benzo Rx, benzo withdrawal is one of two withdrawals that can result in death. I would be researching, or asking more questions about the Xanax
