My Dr. allowed me to take Ephedrine as it was a huge help in my overcoming bulimia. My husband and I are now trying to get pregnant and I don't know if Ephedrine is safe to take during pregnancy. I would love to just stop it but that could cause problems for me...

I honestly have no clue, but you should definitely discuss this with your doctor. Drugs are given different classifications for safety during pregnancy based on the results of studies on them. Your doctor should be able to tell you what class ephedrine is in and what that means for your pregnancy. It may be a good idea to try to find a support group for women who are pregnant and overcoming eating disorders. Pregnancy is super stressful and the mandatory weight gain can be hard for people who struggle with eating disorders. I'm sure your doctor can give you information on what meds are safe and what measures you can take to ensure a happy and healthy pregnancy for you and your baby. Good luck!
