I am pregnant 17 weeks and have really bad depression/anxiety and terrible migraines all the time. My doctor?
prescribed 40 mgs prozac and 50 mg fioricets as needed for bad migraines. Do you think this is safe? I wouldn’t take it if my condition wasn’t so severe. Im really concerned about the fioricet though. It was just prescribed today. My headaches will last for days though sometimes and i’ve tried tylenol. Anyone had experience with these medications while pregnant?
While certain meds like Prozac are generally contraindicated during pregnancy, your doctor has to decide on whether the benefits it will provide you with outweigh any potential risks to the baby. Obviously your doctor believes you need the medication and will benefit, and that the risks to baby are minimal.
Have a little faith in your doctors. They wouldn’t prescribe highly dangerous drugs to you. Many drugs are listed as potentially harmful to a baby, but generally speaking risks are often very minimal.
