  • Lithium, Klonopin, Seroquel, Prozac combo

    A mother with a 4-day-old is giving about half and half breastmilk and formula to reduce the amount of her multiple medications to baby. She is taking Lithium 300 mg twice a day; Klonopin was just decreased from 1 to 0.25 mg three times a day; Seroquel 150 mg at bedtime; Prozac 20 mg daily; Hydrocodone 5 mg every 4 hours as needed (for cesarean); Ibuprofen every 6 hours; and an Albuterol inhaler as needed. Baby had a respiratory issue after birth that resolved. Could she continue feeding half and half as long as desired, with monitoring? Any suggestions? Thank you.

    Dear Learner,

    You listed seven different medications, it is going to be very difficult to explain everything on the web forum. I would suggest you call us at the InfantRisk Center on 806-352-2519, as this needs to be discussed with one of our counselors.
