Pristiq for Post Partum Depression

Hi,

This is my first post on this particular board.  I was diagnosed with PostPartum Depression and put on Pristiq, an anti-depressant.  Has anyone else used this medication before?  Just wondering....

Thanks

    I've never heard of it...is it a SSRI?  I'm on Zoloft b/c it's very low excretion in human milk

    I am not on anything because I am BFing (some do but I am not okay with it) so if I can't hold off any longer I will quit and start.

    I wanted to say that there is a ton of support here if you ever need it. Many of us are dealing with it.

    JAR-I felt this way and did a lot of research. Zoloft is very safe - especially after your LO is a few months if you can hold out that long. The risk is worse for the baby in an untreated mother.
