I'm not currently trying to get pregnant, but will probably do so in the next year or so. One of my concerns though, is that I am taking Citalopram/Celexa. I've heard that it should not be taken during pregnancy. Are there other depression medications that can be taken during pregnancy?

Honestly, that is not the easiest question to answer. You should really make an appointment with your OB doctor before conceiving and get his/her opinion. In general most antidepressants are safe in pregnancy and have very low (but serious) risks in certain situations. Each doctor will have differing opinions, so I would seek the services of the doctor(s) who you plan on seeing during the pregnancy.
