So - very very early stages but I have just found out I am pregnant. All very strange and wont be getting too excited until I have reached a few more weeks and officially missed my period.
I am on Pizotifen 1.0mg. I cannot function without it, I have tried, Dr. S has said it is too early to come off and I agree. I am terrified of my mental health if I do come off, I cannot handle MAV on top of a pregnant body.
I feel incredibly selfish for saying this, I dont want to harm my baby and of course if it was clear that this would happen (e.g. like Topirimate) then I would stop and accept the consequences. I have seen on boards that some people have taken throughout pregnancy with no ill effects. Of course no one would test on pregnant women so the general advice is dont do it unless the pros outweigh the cons, in my experience I feel that the pros do outweigh the cons.
I dont know what to say to the Dr. I know Dr. S takes everyone off the meds, but I am so scared of getting my prescription axed. Does anyone have experience of a similar position to be in? Im so torn on what to do
