I have bn on chronic medication for nearly 10 yrs.
Treated for depression and anxiety. On alzam and aropax.
i went to a GP for a blood test, on sat afternoon and asked bout the medication, he said i must carry on with ev.thing - he says it will be too great a shock to baby if i had to go off as will have withdrawal symptoms.

I agree that you should not stop anything without consulting a psychiatrist. Aropax is not ideal in pregnancy. Perhaps you can be changed to a different but similar agent.
