Customer Question

I have just found out that I am pregnant, roughly 4-6weeks. I was unaware that I was pregnant and have taken party drugs and alcohol the last few weekends. What affects would this have on the baby?

I also took duramine for about 1 week and am on the anti depressant enlaflax.75mg daily for the past week. I am concerned that the drugs could have affected the baby and would like to know as much as possible so I can make the right decision in keeping the pregnancy or not.
Expert:  Dr Norbert Scheufele replied 6 months ago.


in this case I can reassure you, these drugs as well as the medicaments can only do harm to your baby when taken in long-term use. Then they could lead to a dependence and withdrawal symptoms for the child after delivery. So I would recommend to talk to your doctor to find a way of changing the treatment.

Wish you all the best for further pregnancy, kind regards,

Dr. N. Scheufele
