Should You Stop Taking This Medication?
The answer to this is highly individualized. In most cases, you will have to decide for yourself if you should stop taking Prozac or continue with it. Sometimes, deciding to stop taking this medication could do more harm than good to the mother because dangerous symptoms like suicidal thoughts will return. It would be best if you spoke with your doctor to decide the best course of action. While on this medication, there is an increased risk of having a miscarriage. Some psychologists have said that patients can benefit more from continuing to use Prozac than stopping, but in the end, the decision is yours. The key benefit of Prozac is preventing depression. Depression can clearly harm the mother, but believe it or not, it can harm the baby as well.
