Margaret Spinelli, M.D.: Antidepressant Treatment During Pregnancy

A balanced, informed perspective if you’re searching for some sanity on this issue….There is considerable evidence that the decision not to prescribe antidepressants to a woman who is depressed (or likely to have a recurrence of a depression) during pregnancy may generate greater risks to the woman and her fetus than the risks of exposure to the medication. Every pregnant woman is different, with different risks, protective factors and preferences. The doctor’s job is to clearly communicate to everyone involved — patients, their families and other physicians involved in the care of pregnant women — what her or his view is of the risks and benefits.
