Re: What can I take for anxiety while BFing?

Yeah, SSRIs like zoloft and paxil take a few weeks to work, but xanax is immediate. I've taken it before (not BFing) and it works really well for me if I take the smallest dose (like half of a pill). I'm just wondering if it's safe during BFing. Rescue Remedy doesn't really do it for me, I'm not just a little nervous, it's serious anxiety, I feel like I'm going to puke, I have diarrhea, etc. I would ask my doctor but she is a little more cavalier about drugs and babies than I am...she said it was ok to take some stuff during pregnancy that I totally didn't agree with. So I dunno.....
