I've been on Prozac 40 mg throughout my pregnancy for anxiety and depression. It was working great until I had my baby last week. Now I'm anxious again and have no appetite.

I'm still on the Prozac and I'm not breastfeeding. I'm figuring I just need to give it time and surely as my hormones level off the anxiety will fade right?

Dh goes back to work tomorrow and I'm starting to feel overwhelmed and anxious instead of just anxious

How are things going today. Do you have someone that can come over and help you out or just visit with you? Or someone to call? Have you thought to call the Dr. and let them know the Prozac isn't helping much?

Hang in there Mama! I'm thinking about you!

Well I got barely 5 hours sleep last night. I woke up to my dd crying b/c daddy is gone and I can't do what she needs when she needs it The baby was eating and she was needing help and when I told her she had to wait a minute she started crying for her daddy.

My MIL came and got her when ds left for school. I got a 2 hour nap and I still feel bad. My house is a wreck, I feel like it's going to be months before I sleep again and my dd doesn't want much to do with me or the baby.

Do I wait it out or go ahead and call for a different med?

other than the prozac speak to your doctor about an anti anxiety med like xanax or ativan that you can possibly use sparingly as needed to help with the extra anxiety you're feeling which may have resulted after having your baby not just with hormones but with the extra in your life right now that your body and mind are still adjusting to.
