    Default think i have PND but dont want to breastfeeding to take medication

    i had PND with DS and i think i have it with DD. i dont want to go on medication because i am told if you do you have to stop breastfeeding....................

    are there any medications you can take for PND and still breastfeed????

    i think i have it because:
    the slightest thing gets me down or makes me angry
    i am always tired
    sometims DD crying lots in the car gets on my nerves

    I was on anti-depressants throughout my pregnancy and for the ten months I BF'd. Have a chat to your GP. I hope you are feeling better soon

    Please Be cautious... I started on lexapro, which the Dr assured me was safe to take whilst breastfeeding... it made my son go sleepy... then vomit up the entire contents of his stomach... followed by a 'vomit' out of the other end.
