Bipolar meds and pregnancy
I am Bipolar Type 1 and drink the following medication:

- Remeron
- Camcolit
- Epleptin
- Valium
- Rohypnol
- Zyprexa

I want to try for another baby and obviously this isn''t safe to take whilst pregnant?
What do I do ? Should I go off the meds and try to fight bipolar on my own?

Dear Anon
No do not stop your medication. Rather discuss with your psychiatrist to hear which of the medications can be reduced, or changed to safer medications to use during pregnancy.
