    Can I still take Citalopram 30mg if pregnant?

    I am currently on 30mg of Citalopram (anti-depressant) it works well and hardly no side effects. I am concerned if I get pregnant, am I allowed to take the same dose? I am worried that I will become worse if I have to stop taking them when I'm pregnant…..

    This medication is I the class of medications that has been identified to be safe to use in pregnancy, but it is importnat to discuss this with your doctor.

    Can I suggest you take a look at the new beyondblue clinical practice guidelines for depression during pregnancy and the year following birth. They outline which treatments are safe, effective and recommended for treating and managing depression, anxiety and other mental health disorders during pregnancy and when breastfeeding. They are based on the latest research and clinical expertise in the field.

    Hi mig

    For sure it is important that you talk to your doctor about this.

    Your might find the information in this link helpful; http://www.drugs.com/pro/citalopram-capsules.html .

    It is professional (FDA) information about Citalapram. It could be useful in deciding about the questions that you would like to ask your doctor.

    All the best.
