Hey there, I have a few questions for anyone who might know something about it or deals with this.
I am taking zoloft 25mg and think I may need to increase it to 50mg later (but hoping not to). I took it at 25mg/50mg while pregnant and feel really guilty about it as it is.
I am thinking that the nursing should be more beneficial even if I have to take the medication vs not nursing and taking the meds.
Any thoughts on this? I really believe the benefits of nursing are so good and hate to give that up.
Zoloft is perfectly safe, it's actually the most recommended antidepressant for breastfeeding moms. I'm currently on 25mg of Zoloft and I don't have any hesitations about it. I did a lot of research on ADs and tried a few before I settled on Zoloft. DD has shown no side effects from it, and it sounds like even at higher doses, it's just as safe. From what I understand, ADs are recommended against while pregnant, but dont' pose the same risks while breastfeeding. Here's a link with some good facts on the transfer rate of the medication into your milk: Sertraline - National Library of Medicine LactMed Database
