Re: pregnancy issues--effexor

There is a book for women about depression and anxiety that touches on this subject. One thing the author talks about that I found interesting is that it takes a couple of weeks for the blood vessels that connect the mother's circulatory system with the placenta to develop. During that time, it gives you a window to discontinue meds without damage to the baby. This is good if you want to stay on meds as long as possible and are not absolutely sure you are very fertile and bound to get pregnant right away.

However, given the anecdotal reports about withdrawal problems with effexor, it would seem that one wouldn't want to be going through that and possible morning sickness during their first trimester.

I wish I could remember the name of the book or author. I'll get back to you on that. Or, maybe someone else here knows.
