PREGNANCY: Paroxetine may cause heart defects or serious, life-threatening lung problems in newborn babies whose mothers take the medication during pregnancy. However, you may have a relapse of depression if you stop taking your antidepressant during pregnancy. If you are planning a pregnancy, or if you become pregnant while taking paroxetine, do not stop taking the medication without first talking to your doctor.

NURSING MOTHERS: Paroxetine is secreted in breast milk. Mothers who are taking paroxetine should consider not breastfeeding.

I hope nothing will happen to your baby or you... from a caring individual

I figured this was why you were asking trust me though by the time baby comes you will be free and clear of it.

I've been on Paxil for 13 years, during which time I had three healthy babies, who are now healthy children with no problems. I solely breastfed all three for at least a year. At the time I was pregnant, there was no information on the risk of birth defects that come with using Paxil when pregnant. That is a tough decision. I think overall Paxil is a scary drug and I've been trying to get off of it for years, but I just can't... free discount card
