  • Any safer meds other than Xanax?

    What can a breastfeeding mother take other than Xanax for anxiety?

    Ada Rier,

    Ativan is preferred over Xanax as it has less transfer 2.6-2.9% vs 8.5% of your dose, and it is not as addicting. If you have anxiety on a regular basis you may need to be placed on an SSRI to control it and use Ativan for break through anxiety, but you need to consult your Dr about which medication would work best for you then contact us at the InfantRisk Center at 806-352-2519.

      Yes, I think I need to gather more information and discuss this with you. My anxiety is getting deeper. I was told to join an anonymous chat room as per this article,[url][/url] and it helped but I just need to know more about medications such as what you suggested now, Ativan. I will definitely contact you with this concern. Thanks.
