I agree Jacqui. Depression and anxiety isn't something a woman can just switch off. Also the SSRIs, the type of antidepressants they studied are not the kind you can abruptly stop. These include; Celexa, Zoloft, Prozac, and Paxil to name a few.

It is interesting how these findings are limited do not generalize to the whole population. Every time they seem to get closer to understanding a correlation, it seems there is still a huge mystery that cannot be explained.
It's a difficult choice to either take the medication prescribed and necessary for some mother's or to stop and risk the debilitating depression and anxiety. Neither one is good for the mother and child.
What are the "other things" in category A? No drugs are safe for fetuses. It's been proven that a mother's use of drugs - whether legal or not - affect the growing fetus. EVERYTHING you pump into your body gets absorbed by your growing baby.
He didn't really say, he only mentioned water. Everything we drink, eat or take has risks. For all you know, you could drink poisoned water or something in your city's water could effect the fetus.
My city sends out a report annually that shows what's in our water and at what levels.
I apologize, I was in a bad mood when I wrote that comment. Every drug has some risks, some more than others, sometimes you have to weigh benefits vs risks. If I don't take Zoloft I get migraines and Zoloft is safer than migraine medication.
