I have a long personal history of depression as well as a family history. I've been on varying doses of prozac since 16. It works well for me most of the time. I had to increase the dose after DS was born, but that simple increase helped TONS with my PPD.
Here I am again though, with PPD. I'm still on the meds, but I'm taking 40mg daily and I don't know that it's safe to do much more while breastfeeding.
I'm terrified of switching meds though, since there is some family history there. My brothers both had SERIOUS issues when having their meds changed (suicide attempts and subsequent hospitalizations).
I am really freaked about it.
I have a call into my doctor about it, but I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with this.
