Breast milk zoloft

Common Questions and Answers about Breast milk zoloft


Avatar n tn The blue coloring and breating will be noted on her APGAR score I would think. Did you breast feed? There are some cautions with any drug and breast milk. Just a gut feeling, but I think not. In any case, we can't go back & change the past, we just gotta move forward.
Avatar f tn But the doc is putting me on zoloft after I have my baby because it supposedly doesn't transfer through breast milk where as the stuff I was on did. It was tough coming off the med I was on and I definitely notice my depression getting worse again. Glad my doctor realized the importance of getting me back on something afterwards. It really is up to you, only you can gauge how you're feeling. But don't feel bad if you need to take it.
1337456 tn?1278437461 Yes it can be a side-effect of Zoloft because Zoloft can cause problems with bladder control as I first mentioned bladder dysfunction induced by medication. You will see it in the list of side-effects.
Avatar n tn My doctor (psychiatrist) took me off ZOlOFT. I was on Zoloft for about 5 months at a max dosage of 100mg. When he decided to take me off he did the tapering down process in 25mg increments every five days so I thought that was a good tapering process. I even asked my family doctor and he said yeah that is a safe way to get off the med. I took my last 25mg dose this past Monday night.
Avatar n tn Very small amounts of Zoloft and its breakdown product, norsertraline, are found in breast milk. When a mother takes Zoloft, about 1- 2% of the drug passes into the breast milk. There are several published reports on Zoloft and breastfeeding. These reports have found no harmful effects on the nursing infant. Long-term studies on infants exposed to Zoloft in breast milk have not been conducted. Please talk with your health care provider if you need to take Zoloft while breastfeeding.
202436 tn?1326477933 I took zoloft when I was pregnant with number one. I only worked out I was pregnant at about 16-20 weeks (don't ask!) went off meds, which was a disaster and went back on them after about 3 weeks or so.
Avatar f tn The elevated prolactin level would not cause a bloody discharge from the breast. The breast fluid cytology report would give an indication of whether or not an infection was present. A papilloma can cause a bloody discharge. The doctor who ordered the various imaging and other tests would be the best person to explain all of the test results to you, and to make recommendations in regard to what should happen next.
Avatar f tn Pain over my left breast started just after I told a man I love very much that I was perfectly happy we were breaking up. Doctors now diagnose something called "broken heart syndrome" where people that suffer a sudden loss can have a heart attack because the brain releases adrenaline and other chemicals that stun the heart.
Avatar f tn Yes and I try to remind myself that it's just hormonal and I wouldn't normally flip my lid so easily I flashed on a few people in the beginning of my pregnancy and then again when I started producing breast milk it's not good for my baby or myself to feel so angry about dumb people saying dumb things so when I feel a little pissy I stay away from people
Avatar n tn Zoloft, you can expect, on average, that 1%-2% of the active ingredient will be secreted in breast milk. There is no evidence thus far that infants incur damage from such exposure, but due to lack of certainty there is a risk. I am not aware of studies which reveal if methylphenidate (Ritalin) is secreted in breast milk. To be entirely safe, it is best not to nurse while taking the medications you are prescribed. If you must take the medicines, it is best to stop breast feeding.
Avatar f tn There haven't been any long-term effects on kids that I am aware of. Zoloft does pass into the breast milk, so you will have to decide what to do about that with the help of both the baby's doctor and yours. Personally, I think that the advantages of breastfeeding are MUCH greater than any potential mild disadvantage of exposure to the baby.
Avatar n tn If you are nursing you do not want to take phenteramine but if not I am not sure w/the results. I do a online clinic in TN for HCG shots. But then again if you are nursing just enjoy your baby they are only little once and this is not enough calories for the babies needs. You can always lose the weight latter. I have 4 kids and kept on 15 pounds each one. I was not put on Zoloft I took Celexa for post pardom it helped alot. I tried everything to lose weight and could not.
1173196 tn?1292920090 I had about 20 bags of frozen breast milk and we've been going through at least one a day. I'm OK with it though. I think 3 months was a good run. Liam is happy and very healthy.
Avatar n tn Don't take Zoloft or any anti-depressant, anti-anxiety, anti-psychotic medication while pregnant or breast feeding! You need to go to a psychologist/therapist ASAP. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) or Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) will help you. Both individual and group therapy. You will learn alternative natural techniques to help with anxiety, stress, and depression.
Avatar f tn Or to make him happy try it for the first month. It's hard to breast feed premature babies because your milk might not have been ready or her suck might not have developed yet. Just play it by ear and see if you're able to try. Maybe he will be happy with your willingness to try at first.
459981 tn?1212197581 It is not known if Seroquel is found in breast milk, so therefore it is not recommended to breastfeed while taking this medication. I think I'd ask for alternatives and do some research about them, most reading the leaflets... My antidepressant is Remeron. I don't know if that works for breastfeeding (since that wasn't and won't be an issue in the future either I fear) so you can read on that. I have been very stabile (except some cleaning bouts in the middle of the night.
180483 tn?1229532768 I go to the dr tomorrow for what I'm guessing is postpartum depression and I'm worried about any meds they might put me on affecting my breast milk. My DD will NOT take formula and when she does she projectile vomits so it's VERY important that I keep bf-ing her. Does anybody know how anti-depressants affect breast milk?
5856747 tn?1403352282 difficulty in passing urine, passing urine too frequently, poor sexual performance, prolonged erections and the production of breast milk. Then, under this misinformation there is even more untruths: Most of these side-effects are likely to disappear with continued treatment. This leaflet was last approved by the FDA and the MHRA (UK) in October 2010.
Avatar f tn I started having my panic attacks right after i had my first child over 12 years ago, then about 6 years ago i was diagnoised with hypothyroidism, i was staying really tired and exostied, but they kept telling me that i was just young with 2 young boys, but finally one dr when she found out that my breast still have discharge ( i dont know if its milk or what) but she tested my thyroid, and bam, find out, they said i had that disease where your body attacks your thyroid, so i have to have it t
Avatar n tn Talk to a Doctor anti depressants (even in the same class) vary very much on how much get through to the breast milk. But some amount will still get through?
142722 tn?1281537216 Todays formulas are wonderfully nutritous, and though nothing replaces breast milk, your child will still develop splendidly. I am not surprised to hear you are depressed. When you are as exhausted as you sound, and running your life around the pump, the baby, and feedings, amongst everything else, you are overwhelming yourself and setting yourself up for failure. So take it easy, I have three kids, some of whom got more of mom's milk than others, but it depends on the circumstances.
Avatar f tn I also don't want to be giving my medicine to my son through my breast milk so I really don't know when I can or should go back on my medication... basically right now I'm just taking it one day at a time. Some days are better than others. I also feel extra stressed right now because I'm trying to get ready for the baby and I feel like I'm really behind. Once I'm done, I think I'll be feeling a lot better, and I'll be able to relax.
Avatar n tn The use of wellbutrin in pregnancy has not been studied and is therefore not recommended. In addition, the medication is secreted in breast milk and is definetly should not be used by nursing mothers. Since there are no studies to guide you on this, you should probably be safe and ask your doctor to start weaning you from the medication very soon.
715930 tn?1338726036 Also not to add my breast are size 42dd, now they are bigger bcuz of the milk so i have to find ways to prop up my breast bcuz i get tired of holding it sometimes lol.
1123156 tn?1338866969 Hi There, If you are interested in Chlorine free diapers then you might want to jump on in with cloth diapering? Here is a good article on the money savings I was a little weary about cloth diapering but a few members of my family have done it. I think it helps if you know someone that does it. It's really easy. None of those kids get diaper rash and they seem to potty train a lot faster.
214607 tn?1287681159 They have stared it earlier in their pregnancy than i did but this is also fine and actually better than starting it later (or so i have been told). Zoloft is safe to take as so little of it enters the blood or breast milk and is actually quite common. Talk to your doc and really let him know how you are feeling because a happy and healthy mum is better than one that is anxious and depressed while pregnant and after.
Avatar n tn From what I have been told/read Prozac is considered one of the worst possible SSRI's to take when breastfeeding (it is expressed in breast milk and has a very long half life). It is recommended that the blood work of the baby is monitored carefully for about a week once BF commences to make sure plasma concentration doesn't get above a certain level.
Avatar f tn I would encourage you not to get tested and tested unless you have had an exposure such as unprotected vaginal or anal sex, sharing of needles with a drug user or mother to child via breast milk. Other than that, you can relax, you are not going to get HIV. Believe me I have had every fear about it just like you. I don't get tested. It only brings temporary - or sometimes no relief- and then you will feel like you want it again the next time you are triggered.
