HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

Cipralex is in the family of drugs called SSRI's. These drugs are used for depression and anxiety.

Some of these medications are used during pregnancy to help women with their mood disorders.

Cipralex is one of the medications that is sometimes used during this time.

IF your symptoms are returning with the reduced dose, you may want to speak to your obstetrician and psychiatrist about the possibility of increasing the dose.

I hope this helps
