Has anyone stayed on aripirizole during pregnancy or had later in pregnancy. I am currently on 5mg of aripirizole, I know staying it will keep me sane but I also have that fear of baby’s development. NB NOT PREGNANT YET, planning trying to prepare myself first xx

Hello Ramsgetfit25

I'm sorry I don't have any experience to share about this medication. I wonder as you are going to be referred to a Psychiatrist for a second opinion whether your concerns could be discussed at your appointment? I hope other mums might be able to give their good advice. Take care.
