I am bipolar and taking several drugs (Lithium, Geodon, Lamictal, and Lexapro). My doctor is weaning me off Lithium because you definitely can't BF on it. She also doesn't want me to BF around the time that I have the max dose of Geodon in my system. Has anyone else BFd on Geodon? All the research I can find on it says that there is no research on breastfeeding while on it. BF is very important to my Husband and I and we want to make sure we at least give it a try with out 3rd child (we did breastfeed with the other 2 but I wasn't on meds with them). If my mental health deteriorates while I am off Lithium then I will go back on it and not BF. 

Thanks,

Daria
