Talomil & pregnancy
I am currently taking Talomil for depression, my doctor wants to keep me on the tablets long term. I am going to be trying to fall pregnant soon and would like to know whether it is safe to continue taking Talomil whilst pregnant. My doctor said that there are new studies which state that it is safe. I would like a second opinion however.

Cands, there are many anecdotal reports of it being safe in pregnancy, but as far as I know the package insert still says it is contra-indicated in pregnancy. The best would be to play it safe if you can. Good luck.
