If you aren’t abusing them, then you should have no problem, as you said yourself, most of the deaths have been among those who weren’t prescribed the drug, and/or abused it. ! Any comments?

    You need to tell your doctor. There is not a doctor out there that will yank you off the drugs cold turkey. Trust your doctor he will know what is best for you and your baby. I dont know if Trazodone is safe during pregnancy but there are other meds that can help you sleep but you would have to slowly ween off of Trazodone if you cant take it during pregnancy. As far as xanax you arent supposed to take it during pregnancy but I have heard of doctors prescribing it to pregnant women who have very severe panic attacks. Xanax has to slowly be weened down. Maybe talk to your doctor about lowering your xanax intake but staying on it just not at 2.5mg. The lower the dose the better for the baby. I have an anxiety disorder and thought I would never be able to sleep without Trazodone and thought my anxiety would never lessen. I took Librium for almost 2 weeks straight and then realized I didnt want to be dependent so I chose to suffer through the anxiety. It did get better with therapy and making myself not avoid panic stricken situations. I made myself go places and do things that would cause panic attacks and made myself stay in that enviornment. Its the only way to get over it. You have to desensitize yourself. I would not recommend going off these drugs or trying to detox while pregnant though. Once you have the baby you really should try to very very slowly ween yourself off of one drug at a time. xanax being the last one to ween off of. Your anxiety will eventually get better but the road to recovery is hard but it beats being dependent on medications. By the way I am also pregnant and just found out. You will get through this but most importantly just trust your doctor and tell your doc you are pregnant.
