Re: Prozac and Breastfeeding

Can't your PCP, Pediatrician, or Pharmacist answer this one question for you by phone or e-mail ?? I would be concerned too.
Take Care,

Re: Prozac and Breastfeeding

Your pharmacist should be able to answer this for you. Right after my little boy was born I had pretty bad postpartum depression and I started back on my Zoloft when he was a week old and I was breastfeeding. My ob actually told me to double check with the pharmacist to make sure it would be okay.
