I think the best thing you can do is talk to your doctor. I don't know about that medication but there may be possible alternatives which may be more suitable.
My first child I avoided all medication, down to panadol/tylenol like the plague. I suffer through colds and flus and took nothing. It was only when I was 9 month gone that they told me I COULD take these in moderation. I was still hesitant but with my next I did take some when I was very sick with a cold.
As for dealing with depression, I was diagnosed when I was 13. I can't tell you how to deal with it, as although I was cutting, bar post natal depression with my daughter, I've managed without anti depressants. The thing is, some things work for some that doesn't work for others.
Stop for a minute, open your mind, learn. You may not agree with what I say, I may not agree with what you say but we will both learn something new.
