problems after breastfeeding

i finished breastfeeding completely over 2 weeks ago and now i am experiencing the worst anxiety. my stomach is in knots and i can't eat. i've lost too much weight. they checked my thyroid and said everything was ok. they put me on prozac and that made it worse. now i'm on an anti-anxiety med, but it just makes me feel like a zombee. they say it may be my hormones and that birth control may help. has anyone else experienced anything like this. i have never had a past with anxiety or depression. please help. i just want to feel like me again!!

Re: problems after breastfeeding

after waiting about a week then problems subsided. it must have been a hormonal thing. they had told me if problem persisted that birth control would help. luckily i didn't have to go that far and was able to stop taking all medicine and anxiety subsided!! hope this helps anyone else going through this!!

Re: problems after breastfeeding

I'm glad you're feeling better! For some other moms, it may also help to replace some of the time they used to spend feeding with another activity she can do with Baby.
