Symbyax is somewhat different than the above antidepressants. Symbyax combines two psychotropic drugs – olanzapine and fluoxetine – better known Zyprexa and the antidepressant or SSRI, Prozac. Symbyax still is considered a SSRI drug.
Women should notify their doctor if they become pregnant or intend to become pregnant during Symbyax therapy.
Women who breast-feed should not do so while taking Symbyax.
Symbyax is in the drug pregnancy category C meaning that in studies with animals, there were fetal problems. As with most drugs there are no well-controlled Symbyax studies for pregnant women because that would be unethical.
Symbyax should be used during pregnancy only if potential benefits justify potential risks to the fetus.
