Depression, panic attacks, pregnant. What could be wrong with the baby at this point?

im awaiting to see a specialist prenatal care MD because I am considered high risk as well as no regular obgyn dr will see me because i just found out i was pregnant at around 15 wks, I am currently on the suboxone maintenece program as well as kolonopin for my anxiety and panic attacks as well as suffering from depression , my appt is 3/1/13 but i am extremley concerned for the health and well being of my fetus , what could possibly be wrong with the baby at this point, i understand that medical advice is ethically wrong to give without seeing me as a patient first but im worried to the point where i cant sleep and barely eat so i really need to know what could be some of the side effects?? help please

Hello charityrose087
Welcome to HCM

Suboxone contains buprenorphin and Naloxone, which is used as replacement drug for opioid withdrawal. Kolonopin is Clonazepam which is a benzodiazepine drug and used in a variety of conditions as anti anxiety, as sedative etc. As you are continuously taking these drugs and you are 15 weeks pregnant so the developing fetus is a risk.
Any drug taken by pregnant woman, especially psychoactive drugs, exposes fetus to risk of defects.
So as per my advise kindly visit a gynaec doctor and take opinion, and also undergo USG to find out any damage if any. Good Luck
Take Care
