Lexamil contains the active ingredient Escitalopram, it is an SSRI antidepressant.

It is considered safe to use for the first 6 months of pregnancy, but when used during the last 3 months, the U.S. FDA has found it to cause harm to the baby.

You should discuss this with your doctor, because you will need to decide if the benefits to you outweigh the possible risks.

Seroquel contains the active ingredient Quetiapine, it is used to treat various mental health disorders.

Animals studies have shown toxicity to the baby in pregnant mothers, for this, but there have been no studies done in humans, so it is also something that you should definitely discuss with your doctor.

Is there anything else I can help with?

Good day, I am 30 years old. I was on Brazepam - 3 mg, twice a day, and Pur-bloka - 10 mg, also twice a day from 2008, till May'2013. Thereafter my GP changed the Brazepam to Urbanol - 10 mg, twice a day, and he increased the dosage of the Pur-bloka to 3 times a day. Unfortunately I had to go back to my GP in March'2014. She prescribed Lexamil - 10 mg, once a day. Now I am still taking the Urbanol and the Pur-bloka as prescribed, all together. We are really trying to fall pregnant again. I am not on any contraception at all. Is it possible to fall pregnant again, with all the meds that I am taking? And can I still take the medication, while pregnant, without harming my unborn little angel?
