Hi, I'm Jodi.. mom to 5 great kiddos.

I had PPD with #4, and got through it without meds... during my pregnancy with #5, I started getting it back.
The mw put me on zoloft, and everything was good.

During my pregnancy, I had tons going on, we bought a new house, had to gut and remodel it, and then pack to move.
I had Lucas, and 3 days later we moved. (HECTIC!)

Lucas is now 6weeks old, and I have PPD awful. I sit and cry for no reason, I snap at my other children, and well, we just wont talk about how poor dh is getting treated.
I don't mean to, and I HATE the way I've become.
My MW has increased my zoloft to the maximum dosage and it's not doing a bit of good. (or if it is, it's not enough)

I really need to find something I can safely take, and quick. It seems like I get worse and worse daily.

Can anyone recommend something that can be taken WHILE BREASTFEEDING, safely?

Thanks~

Hi jodi,
I just wanted to say keep bumping this up. I'm sure that the slow down in the boards has kept a lot of people away for the last day or so. I sure stayed away with how long it was taking pages to load.


Hang tight mama,
Golden

Thanks, i finally gave in and got paxil from the doctor.

I had to take a test for my mw today, and she said I am borderline pp psycosis *(SP)* whatever that means, and that it's a good thing I went in when I did.

She said it's really dangerous at this stage.. but I just can't imagine how she figures.

Other than me being a wreck, there's nothing wrong with me, kwim?

Alright, I'm just babbling now.
