I'm thinking about having children soon and I'm on a ton of psych meds... Seroquel, Topamax, and Zoloft... can you be pregnant with them, is it easy to go off the meds and be pregnant, or should I just adopt?
With regards to stopping the meds, yes. it is not difficult as long as you do it gradually under Dr.´s supervision.
You should make an appt with both your psych Dr then an OB-GYN and discuss this with them prior to trying to get pregnant. Your psychiatrist can tell you how safe it is for you to go off the meds and how long it will take and the OB will discuss with you what can happen if you dont go off the meds. Between the docs and yourself you will have to decide which is the bigger risk-staying on medications and exposing the fetus to medications or you going off your meds and what risk that is to you.
