I was just wondering if anyone else had to go off of any medication or will have to if they become pregnant?

It's awful but it happens. I suffer from BPD and went off all medications before TTC (the withdrawls are considered like heroine withdrawls, not for the faint of heart)...took 10 months and now that I'm pregnant and planning to breastfeed, I'm still off everything. It's a struggle but well worth it in the end. Although, with all that said, I'm very careful about how things are and with my husband's deployment, things can be very hard as far as anxiety, depression, etc. Something women need to consider when TTC. There are a lot of safe medications for women in her situation as well that are xonsidered safe during pregnancy and breastfeeding. Always talk to your Dr. Good Luck everyone!
