Possibly: Vicodin and zoloft (sertraline) are often used together safely. However, these medications can both be in breast milk. It is important that you speak to your ob/gyn and/or your pediatrician about this issue.

Can my baby choke on my breast milk while breastfeeding?

Dr. Scott J. Wolfson

No: Feeding at any age is a careful choreography of body parts to allow for the food/milk to get to its proper place, the stomach. If there are not any underlying feeding or swallowing problems your baby may occasionally gag on a feed if all the appropriate movements, including timing of breaths and milk flow, is not in sync. This is quite common. Try expressing some milk first to reduce flow to start.

Yes: All medications have some risks but there are several antidepressants that are safe during breastfeeding. There can be some feeding difficulties and the mediations do generally go into the breast milk. Wellbutrin, (bupropion) prozac, zoloft and Celexa are the names of some the medications that can be used.

Yes: Yes, it's certainly safe. Your supply may start to decrease though, and many women wean during pregnancy, but it is safe to continue nursing if you'd like.

Is halflytely safe for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding?

Yes*: Halflytely is a laxative - fda class c , which means that animal reproduction studies have shown an adverse effect on the fetus and there are no adequate and well-controlled studies in humans, but potential benefits may warrant use of the drug in pregnant women despite potential risks. It is commonly used after c-sections and unlikely to be of major concern given the short duration of use.

A 39-year-old female asked:

My boyfriend & I are trying to get pregnant. I'm on Zoloft (sertraline) & my doc is having me get off it slowly; 1 pill every other day for a month & then 1 pill every 3rd day until gone. Does this sound reasonable?

Yes, it's great.: It's best to taper off the zoloft (sertraline) and your doctor has an excellent plan.
