I need advise from other moms who suffer from anxiety or other mental health problems on steps you made to have healthy pregnancy. I want to get pregnant with my second child when I turn 42. 3 years ago I had a psychotic break down and since then I’ve been taking risperdal .5 mg and trazodone 50mg but some days I still feel anxious. I tend to overthink everything. I spoke with my Doctor and he said I need to be off the meds prior to getting pregnant. I’m very nervous because I start to think of all the if’s. Like I’m scared that my symptoms will come back or that I won’t be able to cope with my anxiety once I stop the meds. Please tell me something reassuring of how you managed your mental health issues while pregnant and after. I really want to enjoy my pregnancy. Thank you and sorry for the long post.
