    Have any of you taken wellbutrin while breastfeeding? Any ill effects?

    not wellbutrin but I took zoloft through 2+ years of breastfeeding my 3.5 year old and took it through my last pregnancy and a year of BF my 12 month old. NO noticable side effects.

    I have taken Wellbutrin, Celexa and one other which I can't remember the name of since nursing my 17 month old son. My DR told me they were all safe and that the milk transfer rate was really low. Just make sure to ask your DR about that if you have to change meds again. The only side affect that I notice is the production of less milk while my body adjusts to the new meds. That usually wears off after a couple of weeks.

    Good luck and keep on nursing!

    Thanks for your help. I'm just going to keep a close eye on her to make sure she's ok, but my doctor said it would be ok so I hope she's right.
