Posts: 236 there anything I can take?

Do any of you mamas have experience with vitamins that you can take for anxiety, while nursing? I used to have bad anxiety before my 1st was born, and I would take L-Theanine. I went to a hypnotist for the anxiety, and it really helped. Then I got pregnant and stopped taking L-Theanine altogether. Had my 2nd baby 6 months ago and we are still nursing strong, but the anxiety has come back. I have been advised against taking L-Theanine while nursing. Do you know of anything else over the counter that I could look into taking? Thanks mamas!

It's one thing to feel that you are on the right path, but it's another to think that yours is the only path.

Re: there anything I can take?

I know I was on Lexapro and then prozak for depression while I was breastfeeding. My doctor also prescribed an anxiety medication for the day my DD had open heart surgery. But since I only needed it that one day, I can't remember the name. But there are safe meds out there to BF with.
