I found out I was pregnant just over 3 weeks ago. I stopped smoking as soon as I found out and called the doctors to find out about the anti depressants I am on. She recommended that I reduce my dosage down to 100mgs (previous on 150mgs) then after a week to 50 mgs and then come off then after a further week. I am really struggling coming off them. I dont know if anyone else has any expreience of coming off these types of drugs and if they have any advice. I normally take my pill around 11am each day and as soon as the time comes to take it my head starts. Its very hard to describe but its like having the start of a migraine and my head being full of cotton wool. My ears start to hurt and can only describe it as my head being full of static, like a light buzzing sound and I feel very confused. I dont want to hurt my baby and its development but I dont know how I can come off the pills. I have managed to get down to a dosage of 37.5 and have only half a tablet when I can. I find it hard to function without them and its affecting work. This along with the morning sickness is making me so miserable. Any advice would be so welcome :S
