Re: Some Information instead of just a story...

From: Kelly


Being diagnosed 3 years ago at the age of 24 I was prescribed an anti depressant by the name of Aropax (commonly known as paroxetine I think!). It seems to regulate everything beautifully and my cardiologist (yes my heart stops also!) has advised that in order to have children which I am hoping to later in the year, I have to slowly bring myself off this medication as there is no established research as to how it effects pregnancys. I was hoping with all your research you may be able to steer me in the right direction as to how I can find out about the syndrome during pregnancy etc. Thanks
