I was hoping never to see this site again :( I have had dp/dr in the past for a year in 2012 then again this past March/April. For almost a week now it has been back and Im scared and don’t want to have to suffer again. Adding to it is that I am 22 weeks pregnant. Iv wanted to be pregnant my whole life and I don’t want this to ruin my pregnancy and becoming a mom. I got off paxil back in feb and then dp/dr came back a month later. I got off of it because I wanted to try to get pregnant soon and I knew it was bad to be on during pregnancy and bam dp/dr so I went back on paxil and it went away 3 or 4 week later. After my wedding I got pregnant and stoped paxil. I was good for 18 weeks ( I did go on 25 mg of zoloft ) but started to have anxiety and ocd so I upped zoloft and started feeling depressed and got dp/dr again :( it got so bad I have to stay with my family and can’t leave the house. I went to a specialist for the baby and he told me to get back on paxil for the safety of myself and my baby. So please don’t make me feel bad about being on it, I feel horrible enough. I don’t know what to ask or what’s ekse to say I just want this to go away and hope paxil is the magical pill that has actually been the cure for me in the past :/

I'm sorry you've gotten it again, especially at a time like this.

But we're all here for you! You're always welcome on the forums. :)

So please don't make me feel bad about being on it, I feel horrible enough.
This was your decision and it's a good one. A specialist made sure of that - there isn't anything to feel bad about.

Is your specialist a psychologist or someone you can speak with about your anxiety and obsessions? In my opinion, it might be wise to pair your medicine with therapy.

You have absolutely nothing to apologise for miss...

This is so awful for you...Its bad enough having DP but whilst you are carrying a baby must be absolutely horrendous...

All I can say is take it extremely easy for the coming months...NO STRESS at all of any kind....No matter how subtle it may seem...Hopefully you medicine kicks back in quickly and you start to feel better very soon...
