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
