im researching different antidepressants for breastfeeding. i know zoloft is the best but doesnt seem to be helping me. my dr says paxil is the next safest due too low levels in milk. is there anyone whos tried paxil that can share their breastfeeding experience with me?

I have taken paxil and zoloft. Paxil was fine during breastfeeding. The withdrawal was horrendous for me - but no problems for the baby.

I took it during both pregnancy and breastingfeeding with my older two kids and didn't have any issues at all.
