How do you know if what you are on is enough? How are you supposed to feel when the dose is right? My irritability and anger is way down but it is leaving lots of room for increasing thoughts that I dont like. They are all the time. Nothing like wanting to hurt the baby, more like her crying means I am a bad mom or she doesnt like me. My house is a mess and I fail because I cant keep up. I am a bad mom because I need meds. It makes me think my meds might not be at their full potential yet

That is how I've been off and on for awhile now. When my doc suggested doubling my dosage I was kinda hesitant on it. I haven't been able to go to the higher dosage yet but I will be next month. I wish I had the tell all answer for you in that you are suppose to feel this way and then bam it is working. Do you feel like you would need to be medicated more? I think that might be the first step and then call your doc or talk at your support group and see what they say.

I have a RN that is going to visit me again this week. I am questionning it which makes me think that I might need more. I will talk to her about my feelings and she can likely help me decide. Thanks hun

I think it depends, for me, when I started ot notice baby si crying and I questined what I was doing wrong, or noticing the house was a mess and caring, I took it as a good sign. I had a ways to go, BUT I wasn't so far down that it was all like "blah, who cares" if that makes sense.

hopefully your appt goes/went well!
