Message length 300 characters recommended

I was on Effexor when I got pregnant with my 4th and the doctor immediately had me go off of it and switched me to Zoloft . Effexor is in a class of medications that is not safe to be on while pregnant . With the depression and anxiety I struggle with it is best for me not to go off meds completely while pregnant if I can help it so the doctor put me on a low dose of Zoloft . If you do have to go off of Effexor because you become pregnant make sure to taper down slowly or you can get really sick !!
