help ive been taking 10-20mg of amitriptyline and 4 - 6 tablets of 30/500 cocodmal and have just found out im pregnant about 6 weeks i think . im worried i could av harmed my baby has anyone got any advice
I doubt it will have caused probles this early on, you have effectvely only been pg for four weeks - based on a 28 day cycle.
Book an appointment with the doc, make it an emergency one if need be on Monday to discuss. Do not stop the medication, this is one you must wean off slowly. You could poss try NHS direct as well but I'm not sure if they can help or you coukd go to a local pharmacist.
Hi hun, congratulations on your , firstly try not to panic, I was on Co codamol and Amitriptyline while TTC, Once I got my I slowly came off them, you will not have harmed your baby and your doctor will advice you on how to reduce them. I know how you feel but everything will be okay, my little man is doing great so please don't panic. If you want to talk PM me. Congratulations again, take care XX
congrats on your pregnancy, It is best to tal to your DR but if it puts your mind at rest a little i have been recommended to take amitriptyline for my migraines during the pregnancy as the normal drug I take is not safe, so I imagine it should be OK.
thanks for all replys! u've helped put my mind at ease n its good to know other women av taken these during pregnancy and reassuring to know that some docs reccomend them which makes me realise they cant b too bad. im guna av a word wi doc on tues but uve all certainly mad me smile about my pregnancy again n alot less worried.
i cant say thanks enough xxx
Yes, have a talk with your doctor as some anti depressants are not safe at all in pregnancy. I was talking Klonopin (Clonazepam) to help me sleep, before I got pregnant and had to stop because of the risk of fetal defects. Pregnancy is now my calming pill haha.
