jozeff posted a topic in Relationships and social lifeDear all, My wife is 4 weeks pregnant. It will be our second child. We didn't plan this so we're pleasantly surprised! She is taking sertraline 50 mg since nine months and we're a little worried now. We did not plan this at all otherwise she would have tapered before. She cannot quit CT for obvious reasons. She is mentally very stable right now and she's a bit scared to start tapering now. If she continues to take 50 mg sertraline daily for the next 8 months what are the risks for the baby? And, does it affect the babies brain? When the baby is born will it be like cold turkey for him/her?. I mean, the sertraline will be in the bloodstream during pregnancy. If my wife continues to take meds after birth will the medication be in the breast milk? If so, perhaps the baby can get used to the lowering dose by drinking less and less breast milk. We would like to here from moms or dads who have some thought on this subject. Your help will be greatly appreciated! Thank you and have a great day Jozeff and wife😉
