Dr. Hale recommeds Zoloft or Paxil for BFing moms suffering from depression. Basically the amount of medication that makes it into the breastmilk is virtually undetectible. So if you really need the meds, give yourself permission, your baby will be okay, esspecailly at 8m. You can check out Dr. Hale's website here
Dr. Hale has done the most research on medicaitons and mother's milk. If you want refer your dr to his work and ask him/her to review it.
I hope you get hte help you need.
