I stopped taking the xanax the day I found out I was pregnant and had no problems with withdrawl. Doctors prescribe xanax and ambien for a reason, so your obgyn will not think you are a bad person. If so, I suggest you change your doctor. I still did worry, but the sonogram really put my mind to ease. She was wonderful and very supportive. Have a great day!. My doctor told me to stop worrying.
Found Out I M 5 Weeks Pregnant And Took Xanax.
How Long To Get Pregnant After Depo.
When you get pregnant and stop taking the XANAX, does your doctor prescribe anything else for the panic disorders?
I also found out that the only deformity is a cleft lip - but can you imagine knowing you caused that to your helpless little newborn??? I just know no matter what I am going to be stressing out for 8 months or at least until the ultrasound. At least, I could try again with caution. Hi Audrea. I hope it's true that if something is wrong, you do miscarry however devastating that would be. Thanks for all the advise. I know how dangerous Xanax is and that is why I am freaking out!! I would never take it during the pregnancy but the first three months are so vital that it just scares me to death.
Also, xanax is extremely addictive and newborns may suffer withdrawal. I used to take xanax for flying, along with a beta-blocker. Another reason why this drug is so heavily discouraged. I had severe anxiety and had to fly often, so I know where you are coming from. I was under the impression that xanax was dangerous later in pregnancy, due to its potential to cause respiratory problems in the fetus. Xanax withdrawal can be deadly.
Is the harm already done? Should I continue this pregnancy? I am freaked out and feel like I am going to have anxiety about it for 8-months. I just found out I am 5-weeks pregnant and have taken Xanax and Ambien. Does anyone know or does anyone have any advice?. I, of course, have stopped the medication but am scared it's too late. I have not taken more than 1 mg of Xanax and 10 mg of Ambien.
Thank you Christina. I am curious, what did your doctor say? Did you continue taking the Xanax for your panic disorder or did you stop it? I am scared to l my doctor. I feel like he will judge me or think I am a horrible person or something even though I didn't know. Thanks again for your encouraging words.
I think any good dr would be willing to do this. It might ease your mind. Cabany, why don't you ask for an ultrasound sooner.
The doctors will always l you not to worry becasue you are already pregnant and they dont want you to stress about something that they know if it happened it has already happened and there is nothing you can do about it anymore. I am not afraid of the cleft lip, i am concerned about he cleft palate, and any other 150 syndroms they say are a__sociated with it, and long term side affects a__sociated with it. I am devastated to say the least. If i knew what i know now i would have had them look earlier for these types of birth defects, it can be detected early if they look for it. I did take a few xanax, not consecutively in the month prior to finding out i was pregnant. i had my 20 week sonogram and found out my baby has a cleft lip and palate. The lip and palate are the most common defect due to when the palate closes which would be the 4th to the 8th weeks when most people dont know they are pregnant like me. If anyone has any more info for me i would greatly appreciate it.
Feeling Baby Move As Early As 10 Weeks Marijuana And Pregnancy.
She said I shouldn't worry because they have what's called an "all-or-nothing phenomenom" which means that if you take something that could harm the baby then the body will automatically reject it, and you'll have a miscarriage. It is compley normal to freak about about anything when you 1st find out you're pregnant. However, I don't think you should worry too much about it. And I just had my 1st doctor's appt. I had a similar problem with my pregnancy. yesterday & asked her about that. I took Trimspa without knowing I was pregnant for about 2 weeks. So if that doesn't happen to you then you're fine.

My doctor put me on a schedule to get off of them, which was horrible, but I did it. I spent the rest of my pregnancy worrying about everything but everything was fine. I was also taking Xanax when I found out I was pregnant. Good Luck!. I had a healthy baby girl! Try not to worry (better said than done), but I think you will be fine. He tried to ease my mind on what harm, if any, was done while taking these before I found out I was pregnant.
I don't know why an RN would l you Xanax is okay during pregnancy. He said it is all or nothing. Try not to stress about it. It is true what 'first time mom' said. I see a high risk Perinatalogist and was taking meds for a month and a half before I found out and was scared to death that I had hurt my baby. I was told that if you were to have taken anything in the first two months that if it was going to hurt the baby, then your body would cause a miscarriage, and if there were no harm done, then most likely the pregnancy would be okay. Good luck to you and your baby. I also had a CT and many x-rays done in that first month. If you go to safefetus.com it will l you about the drugs that are safe and are not and what they can do to the fetus while pregnant and if b___stfeeding. Some benzodiazepines are safer than others, but Xanax is a category D in my drug book. If you do not miscarry, you will get a sonogram later on and will be able to see for yourself the development of your baby. They check all that stuff. I have heard this form several docs, I wanted a second, third, and fourth opinion.
Thanks again for your answers!! Have a great day!. 50 mg here and there for sleep. I will talk to my doctor. I have certainly not taken a lot of them, just 1/2 of the. I looked up Ambien and it is Category B, but I have stopped everything. Thank you so much for your answers.
when is it time for me to get an ultrasound done?
You should talk about this with your doctor, and she should ease your worries. I worried every day for months. Enjoy every moment of your pregnancy. 5mg Xanax 3 times daily due to a panic disorder and found out I was pregnant when I was already in my 6th week (I was on the depo-provera shot which did not work for me). Hi Cabany, I found myself in a similar situation when I first found out I was pregnant with my now very perfectly healthy, happy 2 year old daughter. But everything was fine. I was prescribed. Good luck and CONGRATULATIONS!.

I've read that most of the things that you do/take before you know you're pregnant won't harm your baby. I hope this helps. You should probably call a doctor and ask them, but I wouldn't be too worried about it. But, once you know you're pregnant, do everything you can to be as healthy as possible. Good Luck.
STOP WORRING AND ENJOY THIS PREGNANCY. You can't change the past and I am sure your baby is fine. I hate to admit this but, before I found out I was pregnant, I had done street drugs occasionally. My advice to you is quit worring. You might live the rest of your life thinking " what if there was nothing wrong with this baby." I thought the same thing with my son, but he is now my strength and my reason for all the good I do. He is the light of my life. My 8 pound 4 ounce health baby boy was born 2 years ago and he was fine. I wouldn't end this pregnancy if I were you either. Since these pills were prescribed to you, you did nothing wrong and you stopped. I often cried and imagined what my baby went through. I'm sure your baby will be fine and bring you all the joy that my child had brought me. When I found out I was 2 months pregnant, whick I haven't to this day touched them again, I worried the whole time.
I did stop taking it and didn't take it enough to have withdrawals but you still have that "what if." I guess I will be put at ease at 5-months for the ultrasound. I love this board!! So supportive and I appreciate all of your input. Thanks again everyone and I will check back with you all!.Took ambien during pregnancy
