I have no idea if this is true but I find it funny in a dark way that I got pregnant whilst taking effexor and when considering keeping the baby – I didn’t in the end – my psychiatrist told me it was better I stayed on the drug than going off it.
Would that, added to me being autistic, made me sure of having an autistic kid?
Maybe I’ll stay on venlafaxine (the effexor molecule) and decide to have a kid…
(This is dark, I know, but I sometimes think I’d be ok if my kid was like me. If I was to have a neurotypical child, I probably wouldn’t know what to do!)
P.S. Yes, I do intend on going off it at some point, the side effects are not nice and withdrawal symptoms are a nightmare…
