Pregnant while on paxil
Lynnie0714 posted:
Hello everyone. My name is Lynn and I just found out I am about 1 week or so pregnant. However I am VERY scared that because I have been on paxil for 2 years and am curentely that it will hurt the baby. I have many people telling me different things. I heard that it is ok as long as I get off them, I have also heard that it is very very bad for the baby. I have an appointment to talk to a nurse about aborting this precious little thing and I just want facts and no one can seem to help me. Please help I am unbelievable torn with this situtation.

If you are so concerned that you are considering abortion. I would seriously be talking with a doctor, not random people on the internet.
