I am going to be on anti-depressants after my son is born. I have made the decision with my doc not to take them while pregnant but to start after the birth. I plan to breast feed as I did with my first child only minus the anti-depressants. Has anyone ever had to take anti-depressants while they BF? I have talked about the pros and cons with my doc but would like some input from other moms. Breastfeeding is very important to me to the point that I will discontinue the medication until my child is off the breast.
I will not change my stance on BF so I'm just looking for others that have been in this situation NOT feeding advice.

After I had my twins, I tries very very hard to breastfeed. But I just couldnt produce the milk needed to feed twins. So my doctor prescribed me Reglan. It's an anti deppressant with side affects of producing more milk. I eventually stopped taking it because it had bad effects on ME. but nothing bad happened to my kids, it was fine.
