Interesting post, AM Mom. I have taken both Zoloft (50mg) and Prozac (20mg). Both are considered safe, although Zoloft is better because it has a short half-life and thus clears your body faster. Because Prozac has such a long half-life some doctors worry that it can accumulate in your baby's system (this is especially true for newborns who do not have the ability to matabolize drugs as quickly as an older child). That said, Prozac is still considered safe by all the breastfeeding experts but would not be a first choice. I had the option of raising my Zoloft dose or trying to switch drugs to see if I could get results at a still low dose. I tried Paxil but had bad side effects. I went to Prozac next and it has worked well but I am also nursing an older child. I would like to get down to 10mg over the next few months but will see as my experiences with tapering before have been horrible. My doctor also prescribed .25 xanax to take as needed and said that in such a low dose and taken very infrequently it does not contadict bf. I rarely ever take it but it makes me feel better to know that it is there just in case. I have had a very difficult struggle with taking these drugs. I never thought that I would be in this position and looked down on other people who "resorted" to such treatments. That is until I felt the way I did with anxiety, depression and panic attacks. Yes, there are risks to taking the drugs but there are often even greater risks in not taking them. The two formost experts on drugs and lactation, Dr.Thomas Hale and Dr.Jack Newman, both state that the benefits of breastfeeding outweigh the risks of taking an ad. In other words, giving your child formula may pose a greater risk that exposing him or her to small amounts of an ad. (Both these docs have web sites--do a google search.) My ped told me to stop bf at a year because my baby "didn't really need it anyway." (She then went on to tell me that she could not continue to bf her daughter after the first few weeks because she was doing her residency and it was too much on her. As she said, "She didn't know the difference.") Well, I went out and got two more doctors' opinions and they both told me not to wean. I would say many doctors are ingnorant about ad and breastfeeding and it is always good to get several opinions unless you have someone who is very up to date with all the current info. Hope this helps. Good luck.
