I am 30 weeks pregnant and suffering debilitating panic attacks a few times a week. It has been happening for a few weeks. I had a major car accident 6 months before I was blessed with my soon to be baby boy due Christmas. I went to my dr and she put me
Back on welbutrin. It is helping but I still am having panic attacks just not sure if I should wait a few weeks more or if these attacks causing a heart rate of 160+ blood pressure over 140/90 and shallow breathing are ok for my little baby. I am so afraid of this condition I know it is from the accident and I used to take welbutrin and a 0.5 as needed of xanax to cope but my ob dr recommended to taper off and I did. I now am having them and am
Afraid of taking the xanax but more afraid of not knowing if a panic attack will affect my boy? Does anyone have any experience or any advice I see my psychiatrist the 28, and my ob in 2 weeks. Also see a genetic specialist the 16th because I was referred to him by my general practitioner when I found out I was pregnant at 8 weeks because I was on Meds and so far he is 100% healthy. I just want to keep it that way.

I have done counseling it has helped but I don't know why I am having these attacks I was doing so well off Meds for so long and don't want to take anything but they keep saying It is a risk to the baby if I don't control my mental health.

I would be afraid to take any of those drugs while pregnant. Are you in counselling? That might help more than just choking down drugs, cause it doesn't sound like it is helping any way.
