I am currently 12 weeks pregnant, I have been taking Adderall XR 20mg daily (except one 7 day break during which I was barely able to function, became very depressed and began getting in trouble at work due to literally falling asleep at the desk) I have been feeling EXTREME amount of guilt, anxiety, depression and panic attacks. I have been dealing with depression and anxiety my whole life but was able to manage and was just taking Adderall prior to getting pregnant. This pregnancy was planned and we are very happy about it but when the initial happiness wore off I became severely depressed, to a point I was having suicidal thoughts or even thoughts of terminating the pregnancy, I just couldnâ€™t think straight and I cried all the time. I went through a similar thing with my first child, who is now 9, and bad post partum depression but I was 19 at a time and didnâ€™t know any better, just thought it was a long care of the â€œbaby bluesâ€. I discussed this with my psychiatrist and he recommended starting Zoloft , 25mg at bedtime. He said I will basically continue to fall apart if I dont start an antidepressant. I put off starting Zoloft until now, when Im 12 weeks along.
