In reply to Wellbutrin SR and pregnancy?, posted by april8 on August 1, 2005, at 16:21:29

I think that most docs say that you need to weigh the risks and benefits of taking a med during pregnancy. They don't *think* that it does anything major to the baby, but also they suggest you go off unless it is clear that you need it. Like if you are going to become severely depressed so that you can't function, it is probably a bad idea to stop it.

Here are some questions that might help you sort it out. If you would like, you can post some answers and maybe people will have more input for you:

How long have you been on wellbutrin? Why? Have you tried to address your difficulties through non-medication means (like therapy?)Are you hesitant to go off of WB? Why? Is this a particularly stressful time in your life? If so, are you in a good place to have a kid right now?

Some people compromise and don't take the medication during the 1st 3 months of pregnancy b/c that is when a lot of the baby's organs etc are forming. Of course, that would require you to be off of it while you are trying to get pregnant too.

Good luck,
