I talked to my doctor about "safe" meds to take for anxiety attacks while BF, and he'd initially suggested Lexapro, but did some research and told me he wasn't comfortable prescribing it while I was still BFing.
So, I have basically been dealing with the anxiety issue without meds for now. I've told myself that if I get to a point where I'm not able to function (i.e. leave the house) for more than 24 hours, I would have to consider an alternative, such as supplementing or something that would allow me to take medication.
So far, I've not had to cross that bridge...but I think that letting myself off the hook has helped some.
