Re: zoloft while breastfeeding

I keep seeing all these commercials on the TV about a lawsuit related to Zoloft and birth defects when taken during pregnancy, but I know you can take more BFing than when pregnant...

Zoloft is supposed to be considered safe when taken during bf'ing because it reportedly isn't secreted in the breast milk. I'm not an M.D. or a pharmacist though. You might consider talking to your ob/gyn, pediatrician, or pharmacist if that helps.

THey tell you not to take it during pregnancy in the last trimester as it causes lung issues. It is considered safe while BFing as it is not secreted in milk. I am not on that one, but on Paxil. I have not had any issues, nor has my little one.

Everything comes through BM. Have you tried Cipralex or Wellbutrin? We have prescribed it with much success.

I have taken it both in pregnancy and breast fed my currently 11 month old. I see a psychiatrist who specializes in pregnant and pp women. Zoloft has the least amount that passes through breast milk. I have seen no ill side effects on my child.
When you say the baby was off balance, what was she doing? Did you start on a low dose?
