Amanda Seyfried Reveals She Took Antidepressants While Pregnant

The Les Misérables actress just got real about her recent pregnancy.

Amanda Seyfried appeared on Dr. Berlin's Informed Pregnancy podcast and revealed that she's struggled with OCD and anxiety for years.

"It would take me a really long time to put my clothes away in the drawers," the 31-year-old explained (via Page Six). "And it's all about organization and if it doesn't feel right you have to keep moving until it feels right, keep moving things around until they feel right. I have a thing with numbers, which is really common."

Seyfried also shared that she's been taking the drug Lexapro for several years and didn't get off of it during her pregnancy. "I didn't get off my antidepressant. It's really for anti-anxiety for me," she said. "I was on an extremely low dose. A healthy parent is a healthy kid."

And, while it may not be the right choice for everyone, staying on her antidepressant medication apparently worked well for her. Speaking about her "perfect" birth experience, she stated, "It was quiet and beautiful, and it was the best moment of my life for sure. And I would do it again in a heartbeat."

Seyfried, who quietly eloped with actor Thomas Sadoski, welcomed their first child together—a baby girl—in late March 2017.

As Nicki Swift previously reported, motherhood has been suiting Seyfried very well. "Man, I love being a mother," she said just two months after giving birth. "I love my family so much."
