I Can't Be On Meds Right Now Do You Think A Therapist Would Be Beneficial To Me?

I Can't Be On Meds Right Now Do You Think A Therapist Would Be Beneficial To Me?

I'm currently pregnant so my Dr took me off my meds a combo of Zoloft and wellbutrin. They were really helping me. I felt motivated productive generally happy. I felt I didn't need a therapist due to how I was feeling but now with me not being on my meds I feel sad and unmotivated. I sleep a lot never wanna get up to do things. I cry a lot. I feel like I had a handle on my depression but now I don't. Would seeing a therapist help?

I would definitely get into seeing a therapist.... If you are pregnant, you know you are going to be more tired and wanting to rest, at least at the beginning...

You can do this.... with some help..... and we are here to cheer you on!

My reg Dr said wellbutrin was still safe to take but my ob doesn't want me to take anything while pregnant and BC I've miscarried before I decided to listen to him I usually see my reg Dr for my depression and she's been great

Your Dr should have known better than to take you off the meds like that. And there ARE some things you can take while pregnant. I also believe you need to find another obgyn. To NOT believe in depression is a MAJOR reason to not want a dr like that. I wish you the BEST! Just have to find the right Dr's for YOU and your illness. And those aren't the ones you need. And know I'm here for you! I KNOW how hard these things can be!

My Dr took me off them like cold turkey just took them away my ob not my gm my ob doesn't believe in depression and taking anything while pregnant I have extreme morning sickness and had to get anti nausea meds from gm so maybe it's withdrawals or the depression coming back or both I just know it sucks and can't wait to see a therapist and to have this baby so I can get on my meds again

I hope you did a slow tritation off of your medication. It could be withdrawals even if you did wean off slowly. Withdrawls can last a long time.
It may be the depression coming back. If so, now would be a great time to start therapy and work toward being the healthiest, happiest mother you can be. Blessings
