I was on Citilopram but weaned myself off it before TTC. This was my decision though and wasn't specifically advised to do so by my GP. I can understand your reluctance to come off your tablets because the withdrawal if not managed properly is very unpleasant.

When I could feel myself going downhill again during early pregnancy, I went back to my GP and asked if I could go back on the tablets and she said no. She felt it was too risky to start on medication while being pregnant; if I was already on them, then that would have been different. She arranged counselling for me instead but would have prescribed something as a last resort.

Baileysmommy gave me this link, which I found helpful:
(great article on anti depressants by mayo health http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/ant...ssants/DN00007 )

I know there are lots of women who conceive naturally and go on to have healthy babies even though they are on antidepressants but it doesn't stop you from worrying!

My doc once remarked that it was like giving insulin to a diabetic

I'm concerned about its effects on ttc and pregnancy though. I heard some time back that it had been linked to heart defects in children, although this was rare. Have any of you been advised to wean yourselves off when ttc? I have yet to speak to my dispensing doc about it. I'm dreading coming off it as the withdrawals are unpleasant, and I know my anxiety symptoms will return with a vengeance. I'm a much more pleasant and reasonable person will taking them lol

Thanks Ruth,

Actually I've taken the decision to wean off. My doc said it was a matter of weighing up risks versus benefits, and that stress hormones are also potentially damaging to a foetus, and that pregnancy itself can be very stressful.

I agree with him up to a point, but I feel that a drug, which is an artificial substance, is a different matter and can have all sorts of unexpected and unintended consequences. The only other thing that helps with natural anxiety is lots of exercise, so I guess I'll be back on the treadmill with a vengeance for the next while lol What worried me most specifically is finding out that paroxetine causes withdrawal in the newborn infant if it's taken in the last trimester. I know how unpleasant withdrawals from this drug are, and it's the LAST thing I'd want to inflict on a baby

Well today I started taking co-enzyme Q10. It is a dose of 100mg daily. I am hoping it may make some difference. I have read though that it can take up to 3 months to have beneficial effect on follies that are forming as it takes 3 months for an egg to mature to the point of ovulation.
My HPTs were back to a clear BFN 10 days after the D&C and I have a line starting on the OPKs. Here's hoping we get our miracle if not this month then in 3 months time.

Hello and we are in similar situations. I am 47 have children but just didn't feel "done" so after 7 years I hace decided to try once more. Not exactly sure what my FSH is at this point, I did do a home fertility anf was still fertile last year. I am currently 5 dpo, looking forward to testing soon..i have had my share of losses during my years of ttc, one loss was a baby who was 29 days old . I am sorry for youre losses and hope you get your bfp son!!!! Good luck to you.

Anything to help egg quality or does take 3 months to have full affect but I'm sure it starts to have some effect from day 1

Despie is paradox the omega 3,6 & 9 tablet? I was wondering about changing to that when my omega 3 runs out in a month or so I've seen it on eBay a couple of cheaper than Boots but not much cheaper

Sorry for jumpin in here, but just wanted to reply to Macwooly. Yes paradox is omega 3,6,9. My fertility Dr told me to go on it, which I did in January and when I had ivf last month, I produced 8 eggs, 5 of which fertilised and were amazing embryos. The embryologist and my consultant were really surprised at the quality of them. Unfortunately they didn't stick but i'm sure that's because of my lining being too thin. Am trying acupuncture and chinese meds to help uterine lining now as well. I would definitely recommend Paradox. It helps stop environmental damage to DNA of the egg. And you're right it probably does take 3 months to work fully. Good luck to all xx
