Celexa while BFing

Has anyone taken this while BFing? I have looked at Dr. Hales website and LactMed but just wondered it anyone here has taken it for PPD and Anxiety?

I haven't. They switched me to Zoloft when pregnant and breastfeeding as it is the safest. I took it after breastfeeding my older son until my second trimester with my youngest. It's a great medication, but the zoloft has been working for me. I'd rather be on celexa, but it's not as safe.

Re: Celexa while BFing

Hi, i'm new here! I never took Celexa while BF but i did take zoloft and i have a very healthy happy almost 3 year old. He never had any of the "possible" side effects. Talk to your doctor and the pediatrician can also be helpful in this area because he/she is only concerned with your child's health. I always valued my ped's opinion when it came to BF and meds. Hope this helps
