During my pregnancy with my son, I was also pregnant with several kidney stones. The pain was excruciating and awful. But at the same time I didn’t want to take the pain medication that my doctor prescribed to me because I was worried about my unborn child. Sure, my doctor assured me that it was safe but at the same time I didn’t want to take risks. I didn’t want to take any pill or medication that I would later regret for the rest of my life.
I’m sure a lot of people feel the same way I did about taking medication during pregnancy. That’s why so many are shocked to hear Amanda Seyfried say that she took antidepressants during her pregnancy.
