Postpartum Depression (PPD) board


Hello All,

My sister in law is suffering from a horrible case of postpartum depression which incdludes high anxiety and panic attacks. She was prescribed prozac yesterday but I dont know if that is the proper treatment.

Can anyone tell me if they know anything about this problem and exactley what the proper method of treatment and medication is.

Thanks
I don't know much about PPD but a friend of mine suffered from it after her first. In her case it meant a lot of really bad insomnia - not anxiety like your sister. She was given Prozac as well and it helped get things under control. I hope the same is true for your sister.
