Hi - I was on varying levels of Sertraline (Zoloft) with highest dose being 200mg for a while. Also has Olanzapine (Xyprexa) for a short stint and the occassional Larazapam for panic. Lovely to now be entirely drug free though HTH

I am on a daily dose of 100mg Zoloft, and it has given me my life back! I was on it after the birth of my DD, and the weaned myself off it (after consultation with my GP) when I found out that i was pregnant again, after 8 months. Big mistake! I didn't take it during the pregnancy (although I probably should have), and started on the medications three days after my DS was born. No I am feeling so much better, and this time I'm staying on it for a while.
Hope you are doing relatively well!

I had severe PND with baby number 2 who is now 5 and I am now the proud mum of 4. It took several trials of different meds to find the right one and it takes a couple of weeks for each one to have effect. I am on effexor (venlofaxine) and seroquel which are both safe if you are pregnant again in the future

I was on Effexor XR 75mg. I found it great although did gain some weight. I have been off it now for about 2 months as we are ttc#2. Took about 2 weeks for me to wean off it.

I am currently on 100mg zoloft. It really seems to be helping with the anxiety and moods.

I'm starting B-12 Shots next week, so hopefully this works.

I'm on 150mg of Zoloft. It works very well I stopped taking it a while ago (just for a little while...I forgot to refill my script) and the difference was very noticeable.

I'm on 50mg of Pristiq. It definitely makes a difference.

I think mine is 10mg of Lexapro - doesn't sound like much compared to some of the PPs but I definitely noticed when I tried cutting doseage down to half tabs instead of whole. Thought I was doing ok but took about 4 weeks for me to realise I really wasn't. Back up to whole tablet and seems to be keeping me sane :-)
