Customer Question

I want to have one or maybe two children possibly...but...I have taken pschycological medications such as Geodon, Seraqual, trazadone, wellburtrin, and tried others before...I am now on Risperdal (risperdone), & Clonezapin. I have an aniexty disorder which is much better on medication. Can I have children just as everyone else without giving them birth defects and if there is a possibilty what are the ratios of births with defects?

Resperidone and clonezapin are safe drugs to be taken during pregnancy and there is no added risk to a lady on these drugs as compared to females on no anti-psychotic medicines. There are some reports that resperidone might cause some birth defects, but these reports have not been proven.
