Posted earlier this week about starting to seek help for signs of PPD - I ended up calling my OB/GYN and set up an appointment with my PCP to get a referral for a psychiatrist.
I'm a little confused - my OBGYN gave me a prescription for Wellbutrin, and basically said that there are no safe (or at least 100% safe) meds to take while breastfeeding. I called my pediatrician, who basically said that there aren't many safe meds but I could maybe take Prozac, only in low amounts. I will definitely discuss this with my psychiatrist, but I'm baffled that I hear of women taking meds (Zoloft, Prozac) while BFing, but other doctors say no. Is it just a doctor by doctor difference of opinion? I feel like I've tried to advocate for myself and try to find a way to keep breastfeeding, but I'm just not sure what to do. Any advice would be helpful.
