I am so happy I found this group! I have always been an over-thinker and worry wart but it never affected my life. After going off Yaz birth control I experienced severe anxiety. I was able to control it with diet and exercise. In April I had twins. After developing PUPPS and having a c-section I experienced postpartum issues. Those went away as soon as the rash was gone and I was able to sleep. When my boys were 3 months I stopped Breastfeeding for a week to see if it was causing the colic. This caused severe anxiety that I have continued to struggle with despite resuming Breastfeeding. 2 months ago I went on Zoloft to help with the anxiety and because of the safety when nursing. It has been awful!!! It seems to help for a week but causes me severe insomnia followed by a week of depression. We have on increased the dose 3 times so I am up to 100 mg. each time I have had the insomnia followed by depression with the depression getting worse each time. My doctor said I need to go to a psych but I can't get in for 9 weeks! Idk what to do! Starting to wonder if I should try to wean off in
Meantime? The depression is too scary! I would rather be anxious than depressed and feeling like I can't care for myself or my boys! Any advice???? Help!
