Can I take Xanax (an anti-anxiety) medicine while trying to conceive?By admin
OK..Please only answer if you have knowledge on this. I have severe panic and anxiety and the only relief I have found is through an antidepressant called Lexapro and an anti-anxiety med called Xanax. I only take .5 mg a day of the Xanax because I have a VERY stressful job and it gets me through the day. I have "wiened" myself from Lexapro entirely.
I am currently trying to get pregnant and have some known fertility issues. I am doing acupuncture and chinese herbs before going the specialist route to help me get pregnant. Will Xanax interefere with ovulation? Is there a safe alternative?
Xanax (aka Alprazolam) is in the FDA pregnancy category D. This means that alprazolam is known to be harmful to an unborn baby. Do not take this medication without first talking to your doctor if you are pregnant or could become pregnant during treatment.
