  • Xanax and Prozac

    Is it ok to take 60 mg Prozac and 1 mg Xanax at night to help sleep if I'm currently breastfeeding 7 month old weighing 21 pounds? Do I need to wait after Xanax a specified time to nurse?

    Dschex,

    Prozac is rated an L2-limited data, probably compatible. The amount that transfers into breast milk is 1.6-14.6% of your dose. Monitor your infant for sedation or irritability, not waking to feed/poor feeding and proper weight gain.

    Xanax is rated an L3-limited data-probably compatible. The amount that transfers into breast milk is 8.5% of your dose. We recommend keeping the dose low, and to try and avoid the peak time of the first 2 hours after a dose to nurse. Monitor your infant for sedation, slowed breathing rate, not waking to feed/poor feeding and proper weight gain.
