Should I stop taking my antidepressants while breastfeeding?

Ask your Dr. There is no simple answer to this question. Many mothers do take antidepressants while breastfeeding, some antidepressant drugs are thought better than others for breastfeeding. It makes a difference how long you have been on meds, how bad your depression was, and how old and healthy your infant is. Too often drs just say "give a bottle." and this is not the best for the baby and mom.
You may need to . remain on antidepressants even if breastfeeding. Some have are found to have negligible amounts in breast milk. The big question is which antidepressant are you on? Some are quite safe . Your physician can let you know how safe your particular medication is with breastfeeding.
