hi. i hope i don't say a bunch of redundant info as i didn't read the replies to your post. having had three kids and being on a constipating med currently, i have some thoughts.

do NOT eat: bananas, apples, applesauce, carrots, very much bread, and rice. pregnancy is constipating enough. do NOT (if you can) take prenatal vitamins prescribed by your doc through pharmacy route... instead use the brand of prenatal vitamins by "Twinlab" i cannot emphasize this enough. the other vits are incredibly constipating and the Twinlab's are not. it might cost you twice as month (usually insurance covers the ones from the doc, and the twinlab you get at a healthfood store or probably online somewhere.)

about pa's. i do not understand the logic behind the klonopin if it did you wrong before. we're all different, and if that's how you body responds, then that's what you should listen to. one thought is that, for me, the more "long term acting" benzo i use, the worse it is for me as far as potential for rebound panic. once i figured that out, it was a breakthrough. i now use xaxax as i need it; it's quick acting and gets through my system fast and doesn't linger around longer than i need it to. i just need a benzo for when you get hit right then and there with a pa. otherwise, i don't need one. this might be your case?

i also like wellbutrin. i didn't respond to SSRI's. i am not generally depressed as my dx, more anxiety related (PTSD)

you might also try dropping the caffeine and sugar in your diet.... you have to taper like you would getting off a med. both of those cause your emotions to swing. i find i really enjoy the balance i feel having been off caffeine and sugar.

hope some of those thoughts are helpful.

also, magnesium works well too for the constipation (i learned that here.)
