    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?

    Joel Bernstien, MD responded:
    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.
