Can I take venlafaxine and alprazolam while breastfeeding?

Not a good idea. Lots of medicine that you ingest get into breast milk. It might be wise to call the physician who prescribed them and have him/her advise you how to taper off these medication if he/she thinks it wise.

Probably ok. Taking a single dose of Xanax (alprazolam) (such as before a medical procedure) usually does not cause any problems, and many healthcare providers recommend that women continue breastfeeding as usual after a single Xanax (alprazolam) dose. Problems are more likely to occur when women take Xanax (alprazolam) on a regular basis because it is transferred into the breastmilk. Xanax (alprazolam) can cause drowsiness and feeding problems in babies. Read more...
