Does a prospective father taking these affect fertility? Or unborn foetus?

It might be worth ringing Wendy the pharmacist at the breastfeeding network I know it’s not a breastfeeding issue but she knows all about drugs in pregnancy and the drugs themselves. I’m no expert but I thought it was only if the mother was taking them but I’ve never really thought about it

Hi Bluelady-sing

I suggest maybe looking up the particular medication on this site, which lists all the side effects etc for different mental health medications: choiceandmedication.org/ncmh/

I hope this is helpful.
