I'm glad you are all doing better!

At my last appointment he prescribed me a new medication, Pristique. After doing some research (and finding very little) I made another appointment for later today to talk about finding something else. I think I'm going to specifically ask for Zoloft or Lexapro this time. They seem to be the 2 top recommended medications for breastfeeding moms. I just don't feel right about taking something that is so new and unresearched and letting DD become a test subject for it, ya know? The information I did find said that 5-7% of the Pristique passes through my milk, compared to 0.5% of Zoloft, so that was the kicker for me.

I would love to see this board more active! I've been searching for online support groups for PPD the past few days and I'm coming up empty-handed This is such a hard thing to live with, and it's even harder when you can't get support for it. I would love to see an active group on here that other women can come to for support!
