I want to continue this medication as it has proven to be very helpful for me in more ways than one. But my baby's well being is of the utmost importance to me and my loved ones, as is my mental stability.
It doesn't sound safe for your baby to take abilify while pregnant. Here's information on abilify and pregnancy:
Taking antipsychotic medication during the last 3 months of pregnancy may cause problems in the newborn, such as withdrawal symptoms, breathing problems, feeding problems, fussiness, tremors, and limp or stiff muscles. However, you may have withdrawal symptoms or other problems if you stop taking your medicine during pregnancy. If you become pregnant while taking Abilify, do not stop taking it without your doctor's advice.
Aripiprazole can pass into breast milk and may harm a nursing baby. You should not breast-feed while using this medicine.
