Since I have had my baby, 21 months now, I have been prescribed xanax. I think this was mainly dur to the fact that for the firt 12 months I was a stay at home mom and I hated it. I love my baby but I am a working girl. It was a vast difference from working to staying home. I hated it, I resented it. I now have a job and my baby is in daycare but I freak out that she is not ok and should be with me. Since then I have been prescribed xanax and I am wondering if this is a normal thing for other new mothers.
