DD just turned one year old and is still nursing like a champ. I do not want to do anything that will disrupt my supply or affect her in a negative way. But, I need to do something about my anxiety/irritability. I'm not sure of everything that is out there, but have read that Zoloft is the one that is most recommended while nursing. I don't FEEL depressed - I feel irritated. All.the.time. It stems from really hating the state/area/town that we live in and DH loving where we live, and me feeling stuck and trapped. If it weren't for the kids, I'd pick up and start over somewhere new. DH would be welcome to join me! But, seeing that he loves it here... Anyway....I don't want to get into the whole big story here, but just need some info on recommendations of what could/should be taken while breastfeeding. I am going to see my doctor's nurse on Monday, and will request something then. I want to have as much info as possible so that I know what to ask for. I have read that Zoloft can cause anxiousness, and that is the last thing that I need as I am already snapping at DH and ready to bite off his head all the time. I need something that is going to chill me out!! I can't change the situation that I'm in, but would like to change my perspective on my situation. TIA!!
