I've got those feelings of anxiety and insomnia too, so I contacted my midwife and she prescribed me some antidepressants. Those didn't help me though, so after visiting psychologist few times I stopped the medication and got better. I was told the big part of this PPD was the hormonal imbalance, which usually goes away after 12 weeks - it was like that in my case, it's almost like I snapped out of it "overnight." I still get anxious sometimes, but it's much milder and I am able to handle it better. The hormones are the strongest the first 2 months. If you don't feel better soon, talk to your doctor.
