I've been taking Nefrazodone (generic for Serzone) for three+ months now. My psychiatrist is prescribing 300 mg a day for PPD. He told me that the only side effect would be that the infant could be drowsy and to keep an eye on him. Caden (7mos) has not had any issues with being drowsy but has stopped sleeping more or less within the last two months-since they up'd my dosage again. I called the Ped. today to see if there could be any relation and they informed me that Serzone is a #4 on a scale from 0-5 and five being the most dangerous to take while bfing.
That being said, I have called my doctor and left a message. I'm just at a loss at this point. I don't want to stop nursing. I'm afraid of what may happen if if I stop anti-depressants all together. I know I cannot afford to take Serzone anymore. I'm worried that I have caused serious harm to Caden by taking this for three months.
Any wisdom, advice or links are greatly appreciated.
Edited to add: I read the note from LLL and understand no one can give me advice on medication. I'm really seeking any experience other mothers have had with the drug or PPD in general. Just looking for support
