Hi all. I just had a question about antidepressants and post pregnancy.
I had my son back in April. Before I had found out I was pregnant I had just started Lexapro for anxiety. As soon as I took the test and saw a positive I quit it, despite reassurance from my psychiatrist that it was safe to take. (It wasn't, as they had to monitor his heart while I was pregnant) anyways, after birth I started it back up again right away as I wasn't breastfeeding and I was hoping it would help with baby blue and my anxiety. It did the opposite. I was so sad all the time, I couldn't eat, felt like crawling out of my skin. I haven't struggled with severe depression in 10 years and this hit me like a train. I stopped taking it after a few weeks and family could see this difference and I felt more like myself.
I am very afraid to try it again. I want to not feel so anxious all the time and I hate having to go through the motions of a panic attack, but I'd rather this than that feeling of hopeless.
I guess my question is has anyone experienced a negative reaction to their meds after giving birth? And if so how did you go about dealing with it?

They were wrong and the breeder (who I'm quite sure was gonna have him destroyed) from a bleeding heart who is so...

She is 4lbs 7oz oz and 17 inches long! They attempted to induce once, it failed so they had to try again. Needless to say it was a rather rough labor, however once I started to go through the process and having...
