  • Prozac and Ativan breastfeeding

    I have a 3 month old infant. I have been EBF since birth. I am going though PPD and having difficulty finding meds that work for me. I'm having a lot of OCD obsessive thoughts, anxiety, and depression. I tried Zoloft but had bad side effects. I've been on lexapro 5 mg and Ativan 1mg 2-3 times a day for a month. Dr tried to increase lexapro to 10 mg but I was overstimulated and anxiety increased. I'm currently starting 10 mg Prozac with Ativan 1mg 2-3x a day. I am to take it with the dose of Prozac and for sleeping at night and during afternoon if needed. My baby is 3 months 17 pounds and has never shown signs of sedation or any side effects from previous meds. If I tolerate 10 mg she wants to increase the Prozac to a tolerable level and continue the Ativan. Is it safe to breastfeed my baby? Thank you for your help. I really don't want to stop breastfeeding.
