FDA pregnancy category C. It is not known whether Wellbutrin will harm an unborn baby. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant while using this medication.

Thank you for responding, my O.B is the one that put me on them, I have been fighting depression one and a half months into my pregnancy I am almost 6 months now, & I've been trying therapy, counseling everything other than meds,we planned the pregnancy ,just like my 2 1/2 year old, and was fine during that pregnancy, happy no issues, I have never had to be prescribe medicine like this ever, so it is very scary for me,for my unborn child. I have 150mg xl- 1x daily. I have not started them yet! Very apprehensive about it, specially feeling my baby kicking inside of me!

Well your Ob should know.and has probllly use it before also you are past the most importaint time as far as trimesters that cause problems.I am almost positive my sil took this and sleeping pills from her ob when she was having a tough time and he is 15 now and normal boy see what your pharmacist.says but i am as sure as i can be that it is safe at this point in your trimesters good luck and congraduations chuck1957

Just so you know the facts... Wellbutrin has NOT been determined to be safe for a developing fetus. It does cross the placenta.
