Postpartum Depression

Hello... just found this board.

So I have been having a terrible time getting over this PPD.  I have more anxiety than PPD so the meds that they have given me haven't really worked.  Have any of had this same thing with the anxiety along with PPD?  What did you do to get through it?  Any meds that you can suggest?  I am at the point where everything just makes me want to cry...everything.

  • Hi - your lo is ADORABLE!!

    My PPD was anxiety based - I was on Lexapro and it worked wonders for me. I also saw a therapist for a while which I think really helped. 

    Some days are tougher than others, but it gets better!

    My anxiety has always been more of a problem than the depression. My therapist has helped me be able to talk through the things that make me anxious. She also has given me suggestions on how to work through the anxiety, one step at a time. She leads the conversation so I never have to worry about what to say.

    Anything and everything! We talked about specific things that were bothering me at the time, the bigger picture, etc. Honestly, just spilling my guts was cathartic! S/he will lead you down the right path.
