  • If you have PPD...you should really be taking an Antidepressant. I know it's scary to take them at first, but keep in mind that it usually takes 3-4 weeks for the medicine to build up in your system. I didn't like the way celexa made me feel....kinda dreamy and not myself. I asked my dr. for Zoloft and she prescribed it and I really didn't notice anything negative....I just got better. You have to try for your sanity...keep your doctor posted about your progress. GL

  • I took that one briefly 10 years ago, I really really hated it.

  • I took it briefly for Post Traumatic Stress, Hated it, got on massive doses of Niacin and some other vitamin and herbal regimes and got better. Find youself a good naturopathic doctor and treat it naturally.. your body (and your baby) will thank you! :) Good Luck!
