    Default PND Medication

    Is there a specific medication that is prescribed for PND or are there various ones the Dr will prescribe based on the severity & personal circumstances?

    Probably the most important thing is if you are breastfeeding or not. There are meds that are fine for breastfeeding, others that definitely are not.

    Often they will start with perscribing one of the new group of 'SSRIs' which can be helpful for more milder depression, and I believe they have less potential side effects.

    If you don't respond well within 2 weeks, often the dosage may be increased, or another type of AD will be tried. It can take a few goes to get the meds right, but when the right one is found, wow, it can make a HUGE difference to life.

    Sometimes if there is a LOT of anxiety as well, you can be put onto antianxiety drugs, but really, the best info will be from your GP.

    All the best

    If you are breastfeeding, have a read of this:
