I'm seriously considering going back on my Lexapro (10 mg/day), but am so paranoid about breast feeding while on it.
I was able to stay off of it my entire pregnancy and now my son is 3 months old and I'm starting to feel like I need to be on it again. My goal was to stay off of it for 9 or 10 months while bfeeding, but I just don't know that I can do that.
Are there mothers out there who are bfeeding while on lexapro? Mothers who have breastfed their kids while on lexapro?
Did you notice any problems? How did you decide to go back on? I've done the research on lex and pregnancy/bfeeding and know that they say only tiny trace amounts get in the breastmilk.
My pysch, of course, rec's that I use lexapro if i need it and that I should not worry aobut Bfeeding. The obgyn had same attitude.
I just don't know what to do. I am functioning fine, but I know that I am seeing signs of my anxiety and potential depression coming back and am feeling very overwhelmed.
thanks in advance,
